Home on the range


This is another shot taken at Tucklan which I am posting just because I like it.

Over at 100 towns I have posted Home Rule as a locality which is on a rather nice drive between Gulgong and Mudgee ... lots of vineyards.

  1. I like it as well. A very typical Aussie scene.

  2. Yes, it's nice with this really huge tree looming beside the building.

    1. It's interesting that you mention the "huge" tree. To me it is not particularly huge, just the normal height of the larger species of eucalypt.

    2. So ... of course wikipedia knows it all (I searched for "biggest tree in Germany"). One of the tallest tree in the world is an Australian Mountain Ash with 99.6m = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_superlative_trees

      The tallest tree in Germany (and perhaps of the continent), a Pseudotsuga menziesii), is 63m. It is so special that it even has a name "Waldtraut vom M├╝hlenwald". I guess something between 30m and 40m counts as very tall around here. It's not unusual, but it is huuuuuuuuuuuuuge.

    3. Well this one is nowhere as big as a Mountain Ash. The mountain ash forests are a magnificent thing.
