Rural tranquility, Southern Tablelands

Rural tranquility, Southern Tablelands. As I stood waiting in the cool of this spring morning I couldn’t help but feel a sense of relaxation as the sun rose and the first light hit the surrounding hills and the grass in the foreground before me. Earlier as I walked up this hill, I passed a wombat and kangaroos grazing, a truly Australian rural experience on this country property.

Snowgums in fog, Kosciuszko National Park.

Twisted beauty. Snowgums in fog, Kosciuszko National Park. Snow Gums (Eucalyptus pauciflora) are the quintessential alpine tree of the mountains of the southeastern Australian mainland, dominating subalpine woodlands at the altitudinal limit to tree growth. Forests and woodlands of Snow Gums can look quite uniform from a distance, but up close they have such character. These examples in the Kosciusko National Park epitomise the twisted beauty in many of the older snow gums that have survived bushfires devastating large swathes of snow gum habitat in recent years.
