Photographer's Note

Please open both photos in a new tab.
One of the unique features of the Australian high country is the Snow Gum (Eucalyptus pauciflora). They have very twisted lower trunks due to the weight of snow but one of the features that I like most is the colours on the trunks exposed when the trees shed their bark each year. This photo shows one example with plenty of colour although it wasn't at the peak time for colour.
A few of you have been surprised at there being much snow in Australia so in the workshop is a photo that I took back in 1990 during one of my only cold season visits to the Snowy Mountains (we mostly go in summer for the high country walking and wildflowers). The photos shows the ski slopes at Thredbo at a level below where my last 3 photos were taken. The trees across the ski slope are all snow gums.
