Australia’s Women (Trees)

The Australian ‘Bush’ is an amazing place with over 600 species of eucalypts (gum trees).  Whether it’s Snow Gums  with their feet in snow and ice or delicate Ghost Gums in arid landscapes or the Red River Gums in ancient river beds – they are wonderful trees. With some imagination you can see many things in the magnificence of these trees – here are 3 examples titled ‘Women of Australia’.

Iceland – Land of Ice and Fire

Iceland is an intriguing country and fast becoming one of the  most popular places on wish lists in Europe.  I have just added a new page – Iceland – Land of Ice, water and Fire. Not a very original title I know, but everywhere you go there is evidence of geothermal and volcanic activity on an island surrounded by a rugged coastline and hosting magnificent waterfalls.  The images can be viewed under Albums – Europe – IcelandThermal Activity at Hverir  Iceland
