sunset by Steven Guy

This tree photo happened at a time of great personal change for me. I loved this tree ( a morton bay fig) from the first time I saw it. I was with my parents who were on holidays and staying at my place on the Gold Coast. I went back a few weeks later to take a few night time shots of it with the sun silhouetted behind it. I had no idea there was a hole in the base of the tree trunk that the last rays of the setting sun would shine thru. It was a priviledge to see it. Sadly the tree has since been destroyed in a storm.

    Sorry it’s been destroyed. This image is a beautiful memory of it.

    You should submit to the Silhouette group – think it would go down like a bomb:)

  • It’s sad, I miss my tree. Everyone should have a special tree and thanks for the heads up on the other group. hugs
