A short walk last night resulted in this joint effort selfie taken with Evan’s Galaxy S10 Note, carefully positioned on the ground and propped up with a stick. We used our head torches also on the ground pointing up to light us and the tree, along with a 10 second delay to get into the shot. The moon was elusive and hid behind clouds but subtly illuminated the sky. Cropped slightly but otherwise unedited.
This tree is several hundred metres from our homes and was hit hard by a fuel reduction burn a few years ago. While it’s still alive, it is extensively burnt out inside and will likely not be standing much longer. There are only a handful of trees of this size/age left in the area after extensive logging when Hobart was settled and it should have been better protected.
Another great evening of adventure out in the bush.
