[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This paper bark eucalypt tree seems to grow on pure rock in the corner of Weano Gorge. The gorge is made of iron ore stone layers and subjet to flooding depending on the rainfall. Temperatures in summer can easily reach 60 degrees in the gorge and it leads from one waterhole to the next while itself gets narrow and more narrow. The most popular and permanent one is called 'Handrail Pool' and if you pass this one and go further you will come to an intersection that leads into Whittenoom Gorge.

It is amazing how far a tree will send it's roots in search of water, we often see them growing in the top of walls and roof gutters where water is only available when it rains.
The image its self the leaves look over exposed, very difficult with the shinney leaves against the light absorbing rock, though it does show very clearly what you wanted to to see TFS.

I think this red of the stone and the green of the tree did a very good composition ^_^

Original composition. It's amazing how these things do survive. I'm excited as I'm off to Australia again in less that 2 weeks time.
