Photographed in the cool morning air after rain, the variegated colours of these Tasmanian Swamp Gums are enhanced by rain's tracks, rivulets of water like running tears from above. Characters of Bruny Island, Tasmania, these are the Standing People, teachers of earth and sky, always giving, creating a living atmosphere for us to breathe, homes and shelter for many, some bearing fruit and others, healing properties.
