Australian Tree Trunk Series, Photo No. 1

Australian Tree Trunk Photo No. 1, "Dust Storm Over Outback River Valley"

(Click image to enlarge)

I always find the trunks of eucalyptus trees interesting because they are so different from those I usually see in the the United States. I decided to photograph a few of the trunks up close as abstracts. This is the first in the series.

This tree is a River Red Gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis). It is one of about 800 species within the genus Eucalyptus. This photograph was captured in a vertical format and then turned on its side to resemble a landscape painting. This particular tree was found in New South Wales.
