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)

A variety of patterns and textures in the shedding bark!
I am always fascinated by the huge range of features in the trunk of gum trees!

Those tree trunks have such an interesting shape - very unlike our trees here in Sweden.
