Ghostly Guardians

These Lemon Scented Eucalyptus trees line Fraser Avenue which is the main entrance to Kings Park.  They were planted in 1938 and replaced the original Red Flowering Gums that were planted in 1898 which were affected by disease. They are lit up at night on special occasions like Australia Day, Anzac, Christmas and when the Annual Wildflower Festival is on in September each year. The photo is a little bit blown out, but I think it lends well to the 'mysterious' feel I was aiming for.

  1. I would not worry about the blowing if I ended up with a result like this. It simply oozes mystery.

    Brava!
