Ficus macrophylla

AKA Moreton Bay fig AKA Australian Banyan.

I’ve been familiar with this tree for quite a long time, but the last time I saw it (before this shot) was roughly nine to ten years ago. Still the same tree and still as massive as it has always been. A bit more carved into by people, however.

This shot gives an idea of the thickness of the branches, as well as how they spread out. It also gives a good idea of how much of the area is shaded by the tree as its shadow stretches pretty far.

The background is blown out a lot more than I would have liked and I think that does harm the photo a little bit.

This is my submission into Leanne Cole‘s TPM photo challenge for this week.

The theme for this challenge is “Wood”.

I suggest checking out Leanne’s photography, as well as checking out what other people submit into the challenge.

You can find the challenges here.

I hope you enjoy.
