Silhouettes in Kings Park, Perth
There is something about the Australian landscape that I can never get enough of, perhaps it is the diversity of the country and how strikingly different every aspect of it is when compared to home. The smell of the trees and the flowers, the colours of the sunsets, the call of the birds and the warmth of the air. The tree in the middle of my photograph is a Eucalyptus or Gum tree, my favourite native Australian tree. The silhouette of the tree is different to every other - the elongated shape of their leaves makes them easy to spot. Every time I catch sight of one in England, I wonder how it got there.
