Northern Tablelands NSW - A Photo Journey

Post by Keep Calm and Ramify »

I was born & raised in country NSW but now reside in the city of Newcastle for working purposes.
Currently, I am caretaking my sister's property’s in the Northern Tablelands NSW, cutting through The Great Dividing Range.

Here are some random pics I thought I'd share, showing the traditional land (& trees) of the Kamilaroi people. These were taken while doing daily perimeter fencing checks. Trees were big & I was small.

Yep, beautiful photos to fire the imagination. This thread, another recent comment on Micromyrtus Ciliata's and others around natives are getting me interested in doing more native bonsai. Thanks for posting the pictures.

Thanks for sharing. I echo everyone else's comments, but am fascinated by the line of she oaks! The seed must have blown in that direction, and found just the right conditions in a narrow zone. Once the rains come, and they start being pushed over by the flooding, you might be able to liberate some interesting shapes, KCAR!

Great photosKCaR, plenty to chew over. The Eucs with very short trunks and lots of sub-trunks rising in parallel, the massive exposed roots, (not necessarily a tidy nebari), the angular Cas branches (not like pines!) - lots to take on board.

It seems you've enjoyed getting your feet in the dirt. Travel well,

Gavin

Well spotted Mike. I've yet to see Euc bonsai with that rising sub-trunk structure. And most Euc bonsai have much more foliage compared to the trunk than the big old trees we see in the paddocks. So it's worth another look at the real world, from time to time.

Is this due to the fact that we try and make our bonsai to pretty
To structured
?
