Its been raining fairly consistently in Adelaide all week. We’ve been caught a number of times by the showers on our poodlewalks. We would shelter under the trees until the showers pass, then continue the walk. On one occasion, whilst we were waiting under a pine tree, I noticed the patterns of the bark.
I then took some photos in the form of abstractions of the bark:
I then started noticing, and checking out, the bark of the various pine trees in the parklands after that. Very few had interesting or forms. The trunks of eucaplypts are more varied and interesting.
