Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Trees
I had a bit of a hard time deciding on trees for Cees photo challenge. I have just found a few that may be of interest.
This is one of the tallest Ironbark Trees in my street. I haven’t measured the tree but estimate it to be around 30meters tall. The front of my place has some big Ironbark trees like this one which was one of the attractions when I bought Durranbah.
Along the road a towards the river is some forest gums. When they shed their bark, the timber underneath is a bright orange colour. They really stand out in the forest.
Here is a close up of one of the trees.
This is looking down towards the back of my place from the house
In the gullies that run through my place are many Grass Trees. The one in front is about 100 years old. The one at the back is a youngster which was probably a small bunch on the ground when I bought Durranbah around 30 years ago.
Durranbah is the name I gave this place. It means small jumping ants in Aboriginal language.
