Photo101 – “Scale” and Valley of the Giants


Pemberton Western Australia is home to some of the worlds most beautiful and significant tall trees in the area known as the Great Southern Forests.

The magnificence of these giant Karri and Marri trees, densely amassed throughout the region, was awe inspiring as we wandered through National Parks and wilderness areas such as the Warren National Park and the historically significant Bibbulman Track.

The tree pictured was captured on my iPhone 6 on Saturday, while on a 4 km walk with friends through the Big Brook Dam area. It struck me as worth a ‘point and shoot’ photo because of the brightly coloured moss growing on the lower section of the stump. Then having viewed the photo on my Mac at home, I can see the scale and comparison to the smaller trees in the background, which makes for an interesting composition.
