Photographer's Note

The forest in this photo is all Melaleuca. The edge has been cut for a car park. Only Melaleucas are growing there as they grow so dense that nothing else can grow - there is no understory, just the green tinge of the tree's leaves at the top. If you look at the big version you can see a few patches of green through the trees on the left - what would it be? A golf course edging into the forest!

Most Melaleucas have paper bark. As children we had great fun peeling off sheets of the bark of large trees. The bark has also been (and still is) a popular Aboriginal wrapping for fish when cooking.

Sorry folks but I won't be posting any comments for a couple of days. In bed with a dreadful lurgy.
Best in the large view.
