Just Down The Road From The Black Stump by Ben Loveday

Just Down The Road From The Black Stump by 

Gum tree near Mount Brown Station, Southern Flinders Ranges, South Australia.
It’s a very lonely, rather bitter scene that reminds me of how life would have been in this land in times past. The majestic rivergum clings to life, struggling with drought and flood intermittently, and is a metaphor for the difficulty of existence of all living things. Inherent in that struggle is the dignity that comes with it, and the satisfaction of overcoming the many problems of daily life.
