A Little Bit of Tree Bark

I often spend time looking at the patterns on the bark of trees – for some have amazing patterns on them.  Occasionally I take some photos of them.  When I attended the Anzac Service at Beachmere on Tuesday (April 25th) I saw a tree with interesting bark.  I went back later in the day to get some images.  I don’t know what the trees are – but they are in Clayton Park, Beachmere.

Tree Bark Patterns

One tree that has wonderful patterns on the trunk is a “Scribbly Gum” and there are a lot around this region, though not in the park.  I am not sure what I am going to do with the images, but happy to share them here until I work it out.

Image 2 is quite black on the tree. It is hard to tell if it has been the victim of fire in the past, but I don’t think so.

Image 4 is the B & W version of Image 1.  I do like Black and White photography and remember the days when that is all our little Kodak cameras would product.  Now we can take a photo in Colour and then enhance the image.

There are many programs that one can use to enhance photographs – and for this exercise I have used Picasa. (www.picasa.com) which enables me to do quite a lot with my images.  There are many programs and many far more  sophisticated.

Image 7 is really fascinating – and hard to believe that it resulted from Image 1.  All I had to do was click on a button and hey presto, all is revealed.

I like to use PicMonkey for some of the work I do – especially when I have a lot of photos to put in an article and can create a collage.

There’s a photography competition coming up – a local one.  Will look at doing something and entering.  Will see what happens.
