This pink gum is on the side of the road to the Council Rubbish dump. I noticed it one day when I was walking along the road with the poodles. It was probably the first time that I'd started to look the roadside vegetation as a photographer.
The shape intrigued me so I took a quick snap. I've returned a couple of times to photograph the tree with different cameras and in different conditions. It is significant moment for me because I then started to look more closely at the roadside vegetation on the back roads.
