Fine Art Friday–Margaret River, Western Australia

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.

Thanks Beth- what a compliment! It would look great, printed large and maybe on metal- let’s talk when I return!
