Reaching for the Clouds

Reaching for the Clouds

During a day trip from Melbourne, I headed out to the Grampians, an area and mountain range to the west of Melbourne. Not having any concrete plan or time constraints, when something caught my eye I would turn the car towards a newly discovered goal. That's how I came across this scene, a beautifully sculpted tree located down a dusty dirt road, probably transversed by no more than 10 cars per day. The grass was a golden color, the sky a deep blue, the clouds a pure white, and the tree one of only a few. I love these types of scenes where the subject, even when something mighty and massive as this tree, seem so small and almost insignificant. I'm attracted to these lone subjects, and I can't explain why.
