Photographer's Note

I went out this morning to see how our local forests are recovering after the recent fires. I kept my social distance by visiting a forest area with no tracks so was very alone.
There was regrowth everywhere.
Eucalypts (gum trees) have remarkable recover rates after fires. They have growth nodes under the bark so, as in the case of this tree, the growth then bursts through cracks in the bark. This particular variety (an Iron Bark, I think) has very dense hard bark so does not shed the bark like the ones I'll show you tomorrow. It has beautifully red new growth.
In the workshops are 2 other photos of the same variety of eucalypt from the same area.

All are best in the large view.
