Pink gums

June 23, 2012

in Australia

There are many different kinds of gum trees, but my favourites have always been the ones with smooth trunks. On a warm day they feel almost animate to the touch, smooth and silky. These have grown together in a small group, and lean together like whispering friends. They are in a nook at the base of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and the light bouncing off the sandstone walls washes everything in a rosy light, turning the trunks a gentle pink.
