    Hi everyone, here's a set from a recent four-day trip to the western part of the Walls of Jerusalem National Park in Tasmania.

    This was a pretty special trip as it was high-season for Nothofagus gunnii, or 'Deciduous Beech'. Fagus is Australia's only native, winter deciduous plant, and is endemic to the western and southern mountains of Tasmania. It generally shows it's best colour around Anzac Day (April 25) but due to a very dry summer this season has been much later.

    Photographically, fagus and Tasmania have been made inseparable through the landscape work of Peter Dombrovskis.

    Check out my blog for a trip write-up and more shots: http://peopleandotherstrangecreatur...f-jerusalem-cathedral-plateau-and-mt-rogoona/

    That's some beautiful shots there.

    Wouldn't mind retiring on some acreage in Tassie. I'm only across the Tasman currently.
