Wonderful texture and colours! Unfortunately my one treebark photo from Australia wasn't from as interesting a tree as this though I still like it and might even post it someday. All the best, Marilyn

Ian, I've posted some companion tree bark which I assume is some kind of gum tree but I certainly can't say which. I don't know that I'll leave it up, but there it is for now.

Best wishes, Marilyn

How did I miss responding to your comments here, Marilyn and Tamás? I am sorry for being late but I do appreciate our exchanges very much. I was able to take this photo at the time of the year when this particular bark is at its attractive best.

Best wishes to you both,

Hi Ian how beautiful can bark be? Amazing!

Hi Erik,

I really appreciate the variety of barks on the Eucalypts, from the gum bark such as this, through the tessalated bloodwoods, the stringy barks to ironbarks. The diversity even among the gum barks is most creative, and the variety of colours that change through the seasons with the shedding of old bark captures my interest.

Thanks for another appreciative visit.

I have just followed a link from Billy's gallery to here Ian. Wonderful colours and textures on this gum bark, it looks indented!

And I do love it when other people are late with replies - it really makes me feel so much better :))

Billy is a good guide as well as a good sport, isn't he? Dear Amelia, you really must find an opportunity to visit us here, so that you can run your hand over the bark of the spotted gum (E. maculata).

The world of IT isn't always guaranteed. When systems change or priorities change all sorts of things can disrupt our beloved Panoramio addiction. Between Nov and Jan last I was moving into a new networked office in a new building - only to retire at the end of March, move to Brisbane, then Bali, now Tonga then soon back to Brisbane! Keeping Pano connected and up to date has been a wee challenge for this wee lad. Bit like the wee lassie that commutes between Shropshire, Stavanger and Oslo! :))

Warmest regards,
