SquareUp Photo Challenge: Camping at Carnarvon Gorge, October 2020 #9
Casuarinas, commonly known as she-oaks, grow in thick stands along the banks of Carnarvon Creek.
Overnight storms bring welcome rain to the gorge. Hours later, hundreds of raindrops still cling to the trees’ fine needles. In the early morning sunlight, they glisten like garlands of tiny fairy lights.
Each raindrop is unique, capturing a tiny image of the bush around it. The sparkling drops won’t last long – as the sun heats the valley, they’ll evaporate and the miniature world within each one will disappear for good.
In January I’m joining in with Becky’s Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word up. Look for #SquareUp
