An autumn afternoon in the forest by 


The beautiful light of the afternoon sun filtering through the trees has cast a lovely warming glow over the entire scene. We were in the Tingle forest at Walpole, in the south west of Western Australia some 450+ kms from Perth. The trees are mostly red Tingles which are only found in this area of our state. They grow nowhere else in the world. Interspersed with them are a few Karri and one or two Jarrah trees – the Karri being the world’s third tallest growing tree. This particular section of the forest is away from the main areas of public interest and, as a result, doesn’t get very many visitors other than those who choose to stay at the nearby B&B. We were pointed towards it by the skipper of a local river cruise boat we had been on that morning.

    this is beautiful Peter with so many lovely colours.hugs.x

  • Thanks Catherine. It’s a funny thing about colours like this but you’re not really aware of them at the time – it’s only when you see the photo you realise how nice they are! Have you noticed that?

    So beautiful and the car gives a good idea of the height of these trees. Looks a wonderful day

  • Many thanks Kala. It was indeed a gorgeous day and we had earlier enjoyed a lovely cruise up the Frankland River. Nice place to spend a while is Walpole.

    A beautiful shot , a pity about the car being there , you should have asked them to move it lol x

  • Thanks very much Irene. I was a bit cranky about the car being in the way – but as it was my car there wasn’t a lot I could do about it! LOL But at least it does give an idea of scale.

    You are right, the afternoon Autumn sun-light does give a lovely warm glow to the shot. Yes, pity about the car. I suppose you could have photo-shopped it out!

  • Thanks very much Adrian but nobody likes my car!! So it’s a good job I traded it in on another one a couple of weeks ago. But I’m going to keep that a secret – especially from Irene!! LOL

    Now this the first time I have heard of anyone trading in their car because they had the fore-sight to tell that people would’nt exactly find it to be the most appealing part of an otherwise beautiful photo! LOL.

  • I thought everybody did that!
