Tree Down!

It has come to my attention that we have lost another iconic Moreton Bay tree. The tree (seen here in the image -on the right) is no longer. Its somewhat hard to believe that this beauty has been taken by the elements as its such a large & sticking figure.

Steven Fudge sent me a message today, asking: "Hey mate, where was that tree on coochie is sit still standing?" My reply was "I think so" I'll send you a map. Moments later he started sending me images of a wasteland. Sad.

Some of my favorite images

Below are some of my favorite images of this gem in Moreton Bay - she proudly sat on the northern tip of Coochiemudlo Island.

Images captured by Steven Fudge today (28/11/2015)

If you look closely at the images below you can workout where this once proud guardian once stood, somewhere between the small cluster seen in the 2nd image & the small mangrove out in the distance. My images above were all captured in 2011.
