Western firebreak at midday

I have lived in this forest for twenty five years and it never ceases to surprise me with its ever changing beauty. A tree may grow in one direction to fill a gap in the canopy and the next summer one sees a dappled pool of light where none has been seen before. It might well be one of the slowest growing of forests on the planet the native grass trees and Zamia palms seldom grow any more than a centimetre a year but slow growth does not stop it being quite dynamic in many subtle ways. The pioneer plants that grow along the firebreaks blowins from the paddock next door add some exotic colour at this time of year.
