Grand. We’ve hosted a “Big” photo challenge in the past, but for this week’s challenge, we want you to consider not just the size of something, but also that special element: the “wow factor” of a scene or subject that makes a picture so stunning. That magical quality you’re always out looking for and so excited to capture with your camera.
We came across this ‘Grand’ Ghost Gum in the MacDonnell Ranges of central Australia. It’s pure white trunk and limbs contrast starkly against the rich red landscape. It’s estimated to be over 300 years old.
It looks like a ‘normal’ tree, but take a closer look – ‘ I’m there’ on the right side. If you can’t really make me out, see a close up on the second photo! Now this is a GRAND tree!
