On our way home from another photography adventure, I spotted these amazing grand old gum trees situated beside Kerrie Valley Road, Kerrie, Victoria – Australia. It’s not usual to see trees of this age nowadays alongside rural farming properties. Even though the sunlight streaming through the tree canopies was harsh due to the time of day, I was able to capture some images that were workable. The two coloured images within this blog were taken just to help show the scale of these beautiful old gum trees. On my return home, I found the best developing method for the gum tree image was as a black and white. While it might be hard to appreciate here within this blog, once the black and white image was printed off, it looked like a beautifully detailed pencil drawing.

Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative. Being out-and-about experiencing the wonders of the world and the creatures it inhabits is a real privilege for sure. It really does rejuvenate the body and soul.
