INTRODUCTION

A photography adventure to Kyneton Botanic Gardens that runs alongside the Campaspe River at Kyneton, Victoria – Australia proved to be a wonderful place to capture images of beautiful lush green trees.  With Autumn just a few days away, yellow and rusty coloured leaves began to show through on many of the varying trees thus helping to create pretty garden scenes.  We enjoyed out time at this location which was an unexpected and welcome surprise!

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.

INTRODUCTION

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.

INTRODUCTION

During my photography adventures over the years with my hubby throughout the State of Victoria – Australia, I have photographed many images which strongly feature trees.  Trees whether in gardens, lining country or suburban streets, whether lining parcels of land of farmers, or trees that are found in forests and reserves – all serve an important part of our natural world.  They are the homes of many animals, birds and insects, they deserve our respect and need our help to be protected.

As a landscape photographer, trees are an important focal point in any photograph.  Some help to frame the image and others offer different colour and shape contrast. They can be stark and barren, lush and green with plentiful leafing; they can arrear like statues or sculptures upon the landscape or within a garden scene.  They can be towering in height like giant monsters or like delicate ballerina’s dancing in the wind, and at times appear like ghostly figures in mist and fog.  Some show signs of suffering from fire, floods, high winds and human degradation. A tree isolated can appear lonely and sad, but when they stand together they then appear like an impenetrable army that can be overwhelming, and leave us feeling small and insignificant! All these attributes of trees help to tell a visual story about the location in which they feature. They are life-sustaining, survivors, they are magnificent…
