Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.

A magic pic. Great composition, colour and texture.ReplyDelete
I find the muted greens particularly appealing in this shot. The dampness of the day also helped lift the colour at the same time as contrasting because of the dull sky.Delete
I like the way it draws your eyes over the rocks and beyond. As Diane says, a magic pic.ReplyDelete
Makes you want to go for a walk.Delete
It IS a beauty of a shot.ReplyDelete
Of another world.
I find mist does create other worlds.Delete
I am smelling this one with my eyes ...ReplyDelete
For me this type of forest doesn't have much of a fragrance at least not a cold wet day. A warm wet day would be different.Delete
