Not far from where I work there are some huge gum trees. They’re 30m (100ft) order of magnitude. These trees don’t have dense leaf cover, as evidenced by the amount of sky that can be seen, so don’t provide a major source of shade in the heat of summer.
It was a blustery day today - the wind kept blowing me around so it was a tad difficult to get anything like a sharp image. I don’t even think a tripod would have helped - not that I had it with me.
