Early morning texture and colour (500th Post!)

2009.08.02

When I woke up this morning it was glorious sunshine outside (after torrential rain yesterday) so I got up early and went out for a short stroll before breakfast to try and find a shot for my 500th Photoblog post. As I wandered across one of the lawns I noticed the wonderful bark on this tree (some sort of eucalyptus I presume), beautifully lit in the morning light. I picked this section of the trunk to photograph as it had these young, green leaves growing from it which created a nice colour contrast with the red bark.

Yetloh Nice shot Helen. I think the tree is Prunus Serrula, the Tibetan cherry. In spring the giveaway is the beautiful small white cherry blossom which is followed by small fruits. The bark peels every year to reveal this lovely polished burgundy colour.
