desert corkwood…

Whilst the non photogenic conditions continue to persist down this way It has not inspired me to get out to shoot (overcast windy drizzle – yawn). I’m looking forward to the sun re emerging over the w/e and into next week with potentially more favourable conditions for photography and the outdoors. So until then it’s back to posting some of the remaining older images that I have.

This one was from the Western MacDonnell ranges in central Australia and was shot with my fuji 6×17 that I used to have. It was shot on velvia 50 of course, so the original has great colour saturation of those desert reds and blue, post twilight sky. These desert corkwoods have an amazing texture in their rugged bark and their appearance typifies how harsh it must be to be a tree not on a watercourse in the desert !
