Here's some of the more memorable bities:
- another bit me on the toe in a campground I was walking through at night barefoot in Far North Queensland - oops!
I don't know what that was but it left me with some swelling, a huge headache, and feeling sick for a couple of days - I took the wait and see approach on that occasion, but don't advise doing so to others
I admit being a slow learner and have stepped on angry nests many times to photograph trees - not realising until they're already at my knees in shorts - by the hundreds!
Naturally however, this is part of the fun, and I always feel privileged to be immersed in the natural world. The nasties just add a little extra colour to the story, and memories
Trees give us so much, and their protection in some instances is linked to our quality of clean air, healthy waterways, and our very survival
We hope to share our wonderful images of tree bark and Australian scenery, taken over many years. Along with all the great images yet to be revealed
We also hope to be generous to others, as others have been toward myself throughout life
We look forward to being charitable to those organisations we'd like to support - particularly those bringing positive lasting solutions to poverty, homelessness, environmental management, tree conservation, clean sustainable water supply here and elsewhere, animal protection, human development and adaptation, humanitarian support, disaster recovery, children's health, and elderly care, among others
If you enjoy the work presented here, please buy a print and hang it proudly for all to see and enjoy
Thanks for your interest in art de TREEomphe
We hope you'll come to love bark as much as we do
