Channel Country,Outback Queensland. by 

The very harsh outback region of Quensland’s Channel Country where the texture of bark on trees looks more like rock than wood.
These channel areas become flood ways during the wet season and the flowing waters make thier way to Lake Eyre around 800km away.
Either side of this ribbon of trees, the plains a relatively flat and covered in small rock for as far as the eye can see.

    Wonderful character to old gums like this. Incredible how they survive in what looks like little soil for their roots. Great aussie capture!

    Hi Joe, that looks like a tree i saw a few years ago between Cloncurry and Mt Isa near an old deserted township not far from Fountain Springs.
    These desert trees are definately “survivors”
