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)

Guard of Trees

Unusual feature at the Enchanted Maze Garden, Arthurs Seat on the Mornington Peninsula

guarding the garden
like mini broccoli trees
in quiet still lines

Genie Robinson said...

Love the perspective of this shot. I think I am looking at a triangle of little trees. Have never heard of broccoli trees before, but they are really attractive.genie

Looks like a drunken barber attacked the trees :-) I like this very much, the trees have a cool randomness to the branches.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Very cool. In Tofino, land of my dreams, there are bog trails, and lots of trees look like broccoli. I once wrote about a broccoli tree outside my window, along with a few stately others, looking like they were just about to do Tai Chi. Loved this, kiddo.

Steve Fraser said...

Cool image! They do look like little stalks of broccoli.

I love this black and white shot. The do look like they're standing guard.

Margaret Gosden said...

I wonder how they look when they are leafing or flowering - right now they look very regimental!

Those trees have been well pollarded for many years. They look so settled, and the shapes are lovely. I like your photo a lot.
