Survivor

Imagine standing on Centrepoint tower.. or the eye or whatever they choose to call it today and having the whole city around you obliterated by a supersized transformer with a concrete chainsaw cutting down the buildings aka grass. Well thats probably how this little dude felt as I tore thru the garden and probably removed half his mates and the local water hole …
Nonetheless, after all the grass cuttings settled.. here he was chilled and hanging about in a little tree like it was no body's business….
probably too shell shocked to move ..

view this large.. its worth it.

I have seen a few trees in the water, lone trees, striking a blow for life in a harsh environment, made harder by those clowns called humans :)

This tree seems to be a bit of an exception, it along with its mate around the corner are quite vibrant, strong and rather large trees. Looking back over the years and seeing images of the Nudgee Beach, Beachmere, Salmanda bay etc trees and how they are slowy losing limbs (not necessarily thru any human intervention i think) i can't think of a lonely tree in the water who striving like this guy.

This was just a quick visit with chaos (who agreed to do a mighty battle with the mozzies) at low tide, at mid or high tide its all covered which makes for a very nice sight.

Its been awhile since I have put in exif data and spiel about how a image was created, so why not :)

This image is created from 3 bracketed shots, the sun had just gone down behind the tree, but the scene was still very bright with plenty of dynamic range, a singe shot resulted in the foreground be very dark and losing that nice detail in the rocks, hence the choice on bracketing…I really like the way the sun created the glow behind the tree, at first I tried to maintain all the highlights and keep the colours in the middle but it ended up being flat and uninspiring, I found the scene felt truer (thats a real word btw ;) ) to how i saw it when i let the highligts go which also brought back that ethereal glow.
