A Tree Trunk

This image is of the trunk of a Corymbia (formerly Eucalyptus) ficifolia or the Red Flowering Gum. It was taken on one of my nature photo-walks through the Botanic Gardens, Colac, Victoria, Australia. The tree is native to Western Australia.

I was drawn to the tree by the texture and the way the light fell upon it.

I used an Olympus E-500 Digital SLR with an Olympus Zuiko 40-150mm Digital Zoom Lens. The settings were: ISO 200 – 68mm – f11 – 1/13sec. It was shot in RAW format.
