This is a mango tree on a hillside outside my town/village, Pottsville Australia. Had to climb through a barbed wire fence and the long grass to take this shot but it was worth it.

Before Image

I like to blur the line between Art and Photography. I am addicted to taking photographs and then manipulating them. All images including textures and artwork are my own.
There are many subjects that interest me, but my favourite is people…and I think the hardest to capture.
Thanks for visiting my gallery.
