Tingle Tree by Sherene Clow

This photo was taken in the Valley of the Giants near Walpole Western Australia. I believe this tree, called a Tingle is one of the biggest growing trees in the world.
These trees were at the bottom of the Tree Top Walk in Walpole, where we had just walked and then were drowned in a down pour of rain. This shot is during our “on ground walk” post rain.

Photography gives me the opportunity to take in a scene that I might not see if I had not had my camera with me. It gives me an extra eye and the time to stop and smell the roses – and then take a photo of them!

    From Giant feet such gorgeous wonders grow!
    and to see it at their head height is a stunning thing!
    But this capture is so leveling – your life certainly gets put back into perspective standing next to one of these!
    and I love how the rain brought out the gorgeous colours!
    Chookas! ♥Ü♥

  • Yes, the rain absolutely added to it! Thanks for your great feedback, it is always appreciated!

    OHH I live in Australind quite near to the Land of the Giants..did you get to see the…….

    Gloucester Tree

    Named after the Duke of Gloucester, who visited the tree while it was being pegged, is the tallest fire-lookout tree in the world. This magnificent Karri Tree is over 60 metres in height and offers 360° views over the surrounding hinterland. Very stunning but not for the faint hearted…

    theres a Picture on my Pagly2 site….

  • Yes we did get to the Gloucester Tree, but I was too scared of heights to climb it, although my partner did. I will check you picture out, and see it that way! Much safer!

    it sure is SAFER that way…lol the day before I was last there a Man climbed to the top then got so stressed they had to bring a chopper in to get him off he wasn’t game to climb down…lol THAT happens frequently I am told……its a very scary tree…lol Hugs XX

  • That was exactly what I was afriad of, I climbed part way up and said that they would need a chopper to get me down if I kept going. I did not realise others had actually suffered through it. Poor fellow!

    Speaking of trees we saw Avatar Last night Now THAT was a tree!!!! I so wish we had’ve seen it in 3D BUT we definitely WILL!

    I especially love how in the movie the science team are finding out the connections of the animals and the planets and the communication network that the trees provide! Awesome stuff! That’s the religion I would believe in!
    and did you know one of the Artists for the movie is here in the bubble! I must go look them up!

    I so love stunning trees and my heart breaks whenever I see old ones mutilated or felled!
    I guess Enid Blyton and her “Magic Faraway Tree” has a lot to answer for!

    thanks for the tree focus!
    Chookas! ♠♥♣Ü♣♥♠

  • I have not seen it yet, but what you have said reminds me of the Ents in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I will have to get my butt to the cinema.

    I saw the Lord of the Rings and really I was never a fan
    But this! WOW!!!!
    and NO Paggles I have not spoilt the plot! Far From it! lol Ü
    You have got to go see it BIG screen and in 3D if you can manage it! Well worth the 12 year wait for the creation of it!!!
    and these trees remind me so much of it!
    Chookas! ♥Ü♥
