Pemberton, Western Australia

This is a shot from the base of “The Gloucester Tree”- a giant Karri tree that is the world’s tallest bushfire- lookout tree. This Eucalyptus Diversicolour Karri tree only grows in the south west of australia and is the third tallest species of tree in the world.

At 61 meters (201 feet) it is a daunting climb to the top with only small round metal pegs to hold and step onto and no cage to stop your fall should you get vertigo while ascending. A little scary if you are nervous and your hands get a bit clammy and slippery but worth it once at the top and able to see the amazing panoramic view before you!

According to Wikipedia, “Only 20 percent of visitors climb to the top of the tree; most make it only part of the way before turning back”. I’m proud to say I’m one of the 20%!

    Nice shot!! I like that it is in b/w.

  • Thanks, Cindylu! This tree deserves deep respect and I feel the b&w managed to do that more successfully than color.
