The hoop pine forests (Araucaria cunninghamii) are a favourite of mine, Berend. Thanks for your appreciation of the photo.

You may have noticed that this set of 3 has stronger green/blue hue than usual - that is because I was usung my wife's Lumix camera on this occasion, and as we are away on holidays, I am using her laptop, so can only upload what is available on it.

New Year greetings,

Hi Ianfrom the Group A1-Unique Australia. If you see that, you can't help being overwhelmed by the majesty of nature L.Great shot. Regards Ebi

You are right, Ebi.

It is not a good road through this area of forest and it is further, but it is a most enjoyable detour drive home from town.

Landscape quality is very subjective, but majesty along with serendipity, artistic quality (colour and design), and mood make up the 4 essential components, I think.

Warm regards,
