We arrived in Australia (!) and I’m still on the road, but promise to share more travel updates soon. In the meantime, here is an image from a gorgeous place that I visited last week. The trees in Margaret River (think Napa Valley with a Big Sur coastline and a twist of Vermont thrown in) are like something out of a dream…so visually arresting that you literally can’t look away. While driving through their Karri forests, the trees are imposing yet welcoming; beautiful individually but most striking as a whole. Some bend gracefully over the road while other ancient giants stand tall. As I shot this, I knew that even the widest angle lens would not translate the feeling of being surrounded by this beauty. But this image comes close!
I hope everyone has a great weekend planned to somewhere equally as beautiful. Happy Friday!

Sarah, I would frame this and put it in our new house. Not enormous, but big enough that it could be a focal point in a room. It is striking and calming at the same time.
Gorgeous! Can’t wait to see more photos from your adventure!
Thanks Beth- what a compliment! It would look great, printed large and maybe on metal- let’s talk when I return!
