2019 365 Photographs: Photo 17

For about five years of going back and forth to Popanyinning I had driven past these three beautiful trees. Then one day I actually stopped and took some pictures.

This is the middle tree of the three and I walked around this tree three or four times trying to work out ‘its best side’. From this side I would have the fence and road in the shot. But from the other side it looks downhill and put the horizon way off into the distance.

I ended up going with this shot because of the green field in the background and the closer horizon because it is upside of the hill. This angle also puts much less sky in the shot—which I preferred.

I call these trees the ‘Painted Trees’ because of the colours in their trunks.

One day I plan to take some more shots of these awesome trees.
