Gum Tree and Bark

Gum Tree and Bark, Blue Mountains, NSW,
Australia 2009


This gum tree is situated on the Charles Darwin Walk at Wentworth Falls (which follows a route from the township to the falls that Darwin walked in 1836).

The contrast between the smooth surface of the trunk and the peeling bark and ground cover invited a composition.
