This is excellent, Ian. I like the white bark against the blue sky (with just a trace of white in it). Don Albonico has some similar from California that you might look at and compare.

Thanks George.

As I walked beneath it along the esplanade road the sunrise was illuminating it and whichever view I took, it was going to be at right angles to the light, so I knew it would have sharp and clear colour.

As I was not at home in Australia, though knowing Timor to be part of the same biome, I was pleased to see a eucalypt for both of these reasons.

Cannot tell you which species of Eucalyptus or Angophora though.

I will locate Don's folio.

Kind regards,

Ian

Hi, Ian. I'm still awake although we just finished Easter dinner with a full house of children, spouses and grand-children...now I'm ready for a nap! Here is Don's tree to save you searching.

The contrast of colour, although simple, is highly effective!

Thanks very much, Will.
