My photographic exploration of these intriguing trees continues.
On a cool evening at Highwoods on the Darling Downs I watched the fading light soak into textured bark. As eerie silhouettes against a starlit sky, these trees seem otherworldly and ancient, reaching silently toward the Milky Way.

Beautiful shots, Rob. I saw many bottle trees when I lived out at Roma in Queensland but didn’t know the interesting genus name so thanks for the education. They have wonderful silhouettes don’t they? I often tried to take shots of them in front of a sunrise/sunset. I have yet to try night photography like your impressive images.
All of these shots are amazing Rob! I especially like the next to the last one because it reminds me of my son when he was a little guy; back then he called broccoli “trees!” I also love the contrast of the trees and the stars on the last two! Wow!!!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful Brachychitons photos. I love the last one with the Milky Way 🙂 Amazing.
Love these pictures, love these trees!
Stunning. Thank you.
