Eucalyptus

They're everywhere around here.

4. I flipped it over.

It didn't feel right right side up. I boosted the color some, but not much. You know how colorful they can be. You posted a nice one in the rain recently, I recall.

6. Good choice

Lots of hidden color that comes out when they get wet.

5. Very cool, my dear Adsos Letter!

I too love the angle! I think that was smart of you to flip the photo over.

Great colors too!

7. Thanks Peggy.

The colors were still nice right-side-up, but it just didn't have any punch.

8. I like it!

I lived in Rancho Santa Fe when I was a teenager. Those eucalyptus trees were EVERYWHERE. I guess the Santa Fe railroad had planted eucalyptus in the early 1900's hoping to
use them for railroad ties. Turned out to be a poor choice because the wood split.

9. I think most of those around here were planted as wind breaks back in the day.

They are messy as all get out.
