The following are all photos of Angophora Costata, they are known by a range of names but around the Sydney region we call them either Sydney Red Gum or Smooth Bark Apple. Angophora are "Gum" trees but are a separate genus to Eucalyptus. They come in a great variety of shapes and can grow in rock cracks on cliff faces.My daughter calls this one the Medusa Tree.Normally they have smooth bark but this one has these deep grooves along the trunk.For the past 30 years I have been watching this tree slowly grow around the rock.This one is growing on top of a rock shelf in an exposed position.The Hippo Tree.Cheers,Michael.

Wow! I really like all of your pictures Jay, especially the JMT stuff. I've started planning trips outside of my usual summer spots in the Sierra's for next season. Your pictures have got me psyched to finally do a JMT trip next summer. Thanx! . . . here's another tree pano:

One of my personal favorites. This is an HDR shot of the Aspens and Pines along the Kachina Trail near Flagstaff Arizona.
I 30s exposure at late dusk. I nearly died immediately after this shot as an electrical storm broke out while I was crossing an alpine meadow. Had been rainy all day but not a single threat of thunder until the sun went down.
The biggest yew of La Rioja, and my favourite tree. Taken with the phone's camera, sorry.
