Towering

Terri’s Sunday Stills: Towering Turmoil

I don’t know about the turmoil part but I sure I can get on with a bit of towering. Here’s a song to listen while having a scroll

I guess I did find a bit of towering turmoil after all. The good news is that the big Tallow Wood tree on my place is alive and standing and has new growth after the devastating fires of last year. In case you didn’t know here is a bit of what happened at Durranbah

The trees are dropping their bark

I have never posted from my own Ragtag prompt before. Is that allowed?? The trees here after the devastating fire are doing the most unusual things. I found this tree on my place, a Grey Gum or Grey Box I think whose bark had sheeted off and landed almost like wings.

An Aussie song that has no association with the photo……please enjoy

January Squares supplementary light

Beckys square photo challenge: Light

I managed to use nearly all of the photos I had prepared and saved for the _____light photo challenge. Only two missed the cut and as not to let them sit in the folder alone and forlorn, I thought the should get an airing. This post also needs two songs I guess. Enjoy

First off is the Headlight. I was mucking about with my photo editing program, Corel PaintShop Pro 2020, and created this image of a motor scooter headlight

I rather liked the backlight sunset on this tree

The Tree

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Item with two M’s

I was in a dilemma. Should I go down to the bottom part of my property and see what had happened there with the fire. I am glad I did as I found somethings that had survived and gave my joy, one of which was the big Tallowwood tree. You would need three or four people encircling the tree, arms outstretched and hands touching to gauge it’s size. The tree is about forty meters tall.

I know it’s not strictly black and white but the burnt forest has a bit of a sepia tone about it.
