[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Australia has more than 700 varieties of gum trees, more correctly called eucalypts, most are almost indistiguishable to most folks but they supply much needed shade and thrive even when rainfall is very low. These huge specimens around 30 metres high are in one of the hundreds of gullies running through Sydney. Fortunately these gullies are to narrow and steep to build houses in so they are left as "the lungs" of the city.

Hi Murray
An interesting note about the gum tree. It's great to hear they won't be building and cutting these beauties down anytime soon. Nicely captured against the big blue sky.

Hi Murray,

The point of view leads our eyes toward the sky the way indicated by the gum trees. The details and colors are clear and precise. The subject is well frame. The colors are enhanced by the good light. Have a nice day.
