I love it Ken,

It is a fine focus for meditation along with the spirit of Kev Carmody.

Country that was logged around 50 years ago.

Hi Ken. What a great document. Romanticly I want it to be the Sycamore remembering his majesty and returning to pass that beauty forward to new younger generations...to change that something has not died, but is, simply different. Most certainly a fine meditation image.

Could you tell if this had grown over the duff and remains, or from  a portion of cambium that survived? Wow, I'd love to see this up close and personal. The new growth forest, is it sycamore?

Hi Patricia

I think it had grown over the duff and remains. I am pretty sure that the tree itself and much of the regrowth forest is corymbia maculata, the coastal spotted gum, a heart-rendingly beautiful tree that grows in our southern coastal forests. You should come and see them for yourself - I am sure that the many other Australian LuLa members would second that invitation.

Thanks Ken. It was completely off my radar. Checking a little (as I wondered how it related to Eucalyptus in Hawaii) found this:   http://www.nationalregisterofbigtrees.com.au/listing_view.php?listing_id=548     
"Old Blotchy" on the Au. National Register. Thank you for the travel!

"Old Blotchy" stands about 20km north along the coast from where I took my shot.

Nice and dark.  good modulation of wide dynamic range.  reminds me of a fairy tale.

Fike,

I must confess I did look among the tree trunks for Disney-esque faces lurking in the bark.

It is a wonderful pic.

It's only about 40 minutes from you. Just head west on Sir Francis Drake towards Point Reyes, go though Inverness, bear left towards the Point Reyes Lighthouse and turn left on Mt. Vision Road. Go all the way up to the end and park your car in the parking area near the locked gate. You'll have to walk the last bit. The Inverness Ridge Trail is about a quarter mile trek up the road. Follow the sign at the top of the hill, directing you to the left.

Oddly enough we didn't have much fall colors this year, then finally the past two days everything turns bright yellow but also immediately sheds. Well, I don't like the fall anyway, so no loss there, but ended up taking some pictures nonetheless. I suppose they belong in the category "trees" more than they do in the category "fall colors"

Interesting perspective, Bill.  It's almost as if the wind is blowing the clouds from the tree like lost leaves.
