Energetic gum tree

Inspiration was encountered at Dog Rocks near Castlemaine/ Djadjawurrung and Taungurung land.

I encountered this tree while hiking on a trail with great views of farmland near Castlemaine.

This gum tree was alone on a bare patch of ground between stones and boulders. The flows and patterns of its trunk made it look like it was growing very quickly, twisting its branches and throwing away its bark in its haste.
