Portals Exhibition: early images

The dead eucalyptus trees on Mountain Drive were my earliest interest: their stark branches against a clear winter sky for example.  This old tree is right next to the gravel road and I’ve photographed it a number of times.  As you pass by it rears up against the skyline.  The interlocking branches remind me of a cat’s cradle of fingers, praying hands or the tracery in a gothic church window.

Clean images and simple subject matter are typical of my early symmetry pictures. The original for this picture was taken in July 2014 just after the big fire that swept across the hillside.  The storms that have followed have all but demolished the tree now.
