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.
