Deceptive Planting

2015_Rainbow&Pine-3

You could be forgiven for thinking that these photos were taken in some wintry location in Europe or the US. However, I took these in my back garden about a month ago. This pine tree grows in my neighbour’s back garden, tall and proud and I am always fascinated by it. Often, there are large birds flocking around it, I will try to catch those “on film” one day.

These three separate photos were taken with my Olympus OMD EM5 with the 45mm lens.

Below is another shot, this time in colour. It was a lovely sunny Winter’s Day in Queensland, but I rather like them in black&white.

Sending these photos along to Lucile’s Photo Rehab Clinic 🙂

  1. It is always interesting to see how much the monochrome changes the atmosphere of the photo

  2. Amazing! And the warm weather is not at all disturbing this tree…strong one.
    It totally looks like another tree in black and white. The shots are great though.

      Thanks my dear. I often look at this tree, it always seems to look the same so it was good to see it looking different in b&w. Xx

    Lol, obviously the “Australian” in me is coming out for as soon as I saw that first capture I was back at the beach – either Alexander Headlands or Burleigh – where I remember these trees! 🙂

    I like the looks of Norfolk Pines (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Araucaria_heterophylla). I used to have one in a pot in the house until it got too big and I gave it away.

      I like them too. We have so many here. But I’ve never had one because they get way too big.

  6. Beautiful! Pine trees are my favorite! I have the biggest one in the neighborhood, too. Planted from a seedling I got from the state fair–a redwood. Now 200 feet tall after 25 years 🙂
