249 / trees

First time using my iPhone photos for here, & amazed at their size.
Every year these eucalypts shed their bark in 
interesting ways, I see them when I walk to the Farmers market
early on Thursday mornings

 am very fond of the abstract patterns

after 2-3 weeks these particular trees are a smooth white

each one has individual patterns

I think their position re sun, traffic, wind etc
is part of how it works

& maybe some are older

like all parts of nature, I like to think they
enjoy to be admired

not in any vain way, just naturally

a particularly intricate & subtle one

have photos from several years, (though no record of which tree)
am fairly sure its a unique creation each year.
