A twisted banksia, Rebecca Lagoon, Temma, Tasmania. On the edge of the Tarkine Region.
This is a mono version of an earlier sepia one.
I completely stuffed the original file, but found i could revert to the original settings, in Adjustments, and then preferred it as a BW….go figure!

Featured in The Silky Touch Group

Canon 400D, 10 to 20mm lens at 10mm, ISO 100, F11 at 1/50th sec.
