AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

I love the twisted trees and such a good subject for black and white.

I think trees make for some very interesting black and whites. Maybe it's all of the lines, shapes and directions of the branches and the patterns they make. This is a great one! I did trees too. :-)

Naked branches are always a good subject for b & w.

Have you noticed that some branches are as long as its trunk ?
What an amazing tree that nature created. Great for a B&W shot.

That is a great tree - and the black and white makes the photo very atmospheric. Kind of menacing in a way - the twisted old branches reaching out to grab you!

Twisted bare branches always look so eerie especially in monochrome.

This tree has a bending look, its arm like brantches stretching this way and that~ NICE!

Daryl said...

Oh I love your tree(s)..I had this site up this morning, though I haven't posted anything. I was thinking of the days when would just pick black & white film. This is so enchanting Gemma!
