We were driving along a remote outback road when we noticed the sunlight catching the leaves of a beautiful old River Red Gum.
The tree was glowing. The afternoon light was reflecting off the dry creek bed and illuminating the underside of the branches.
I felt that this tree captured the essence of the outback- it’s struggle to survive in the harshest of environments. The tree lives in a dry river bed, standing in rocks and bone dry soil, under the harsh Australian sun- yet it manages to persevere and even thrive.
I have always felt a special affinity for the outback- it’s tough but magnificent, rugged but striking.
Just after I took this photo, an endangered Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby came by to have a look, then slowly moved on his way again.
