To celebrate this milestone, I thought I would share some photos which I took a week or so ago, when I was travelling out west of NSW. I have already posted images of the Hay Plains on a previous occasion.
The photos on this celebratory post come from further west of the Hay Plains not far from the city of Mildura. The bush in the area is comprised of low shrubs and relatively small Eucalyptus trees. What makes these trees different is that they do not have a single trunk – instead, they all have many trunks.
This tree form is called “Mallee”. The term is also used for the general vegetation type, so when you hear someone referring to “the Mallee” you now know what it looks like!
In the ordinary light, the Mallee is pretty.
But in the early light of dawn, it becomes quite spectacular.
The best thing about being up and about in the bush at dawn has to be this amazing light – showing the vegetation in awesome splendour. These will definitely go into my “favourite photos” collection!
