Top tier of National Falls in Royal National Park, just south of Sydney. It’s been almost dry for months but with the recent rain we’ve been having it’s started to flow again to sustain the forest. And the angophoras shed their bark not long ago with their trunks revealing a vivid red/orange colour which goes progressively more and more grey over the year until they shed again. One moment you have a fairly drab looking forest and then almost overnight these vivid orange and red colours appear. And the angophora’s are so gnarly in their shape the forest of trees looks like arteries.

Some dickhead was recently arrested trying to burn this down. Why they arrested him is beyond me – the drop off to the right of this shot is 30m – more than enough I would have thought.
