Finding your favorite boab tree while driving in the Australian outback is not easy – there are so many! You cannot possibly stop and examine all of them to decide. However, when we passed this one I said, “STOP! Turn the car around. I have found my favorite boab.”
The omnipresent boab is a delight in the landscape of the Kimberley Outback, Australia. It seems that no two are identical. They can be tall or short, fat or thin, symmetrical or asymmetrical. The boab is a rugged survivor of the seasonal extremes in the Kimberley, aptly named “The Wet” and “The Dry.”
These old pine trunks stand straight and tall in an Arizona forest, leaving their carpet of needles scattered on the arid woodland floor below them. To see all of this week’s themed challenge entries, go to Leanne Cole Photography.
