    Oh me oh my…there’s a fantastic hint of surrealism to this, Mieke…I’m envisioning little dwarves or spirits calling this magnificent tree home. The color, light, and tones are just superb!

  • Thanks, Tula. I reckon I could do a whole photo book on this tree and its moods and seasons! :)
    Thank you!!

    Ah this reminds me of The Lion King. Love it so much! :D

  • Thank you, Akalei! Yes, these trees make me think of Africa too :) But the biggest native animal you’ll see around here is a Kangaroo. Or a crocodile! =D
