Snow Gums

These snow gums, burnt in a 2003 fire, are regenerating from their base, while tree trunks that were burnt, are now bleached to a stark white colour, due to the intense heat. These kinds of trees can be found all around the Falls Creek area (in the Victorian high country), making for some dramatic scenery.

He punishes her.
A blush heats her face. Confused,
she bows her head low…
knows she’s still bound to him but
aware it’s unravelling.
