Sun-bleached Stumps, Charlotte Pass
Gelatin-silver photograph on Fomabrom Variant III VC FB photographic paper, image size 19.6cm X 24.4cm, from a 8x10 Fomapan 200 negative exposed in a Tachihara 810HD triple extension field view camera fitted with a Nikkor-W 210mm f5.6 lens.
These stumps are iron hard and resistant to weather. There are no termites at this cold altitude and rots and fungi work very slowly indeed. I first saw this skeletal group more than 30 years ago and it has scarcely changed; even in the small details.
