[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a scenery of the North Flinders Ranges next to Wilpena Station.
The magnificent River Red Gum nearby was photographed by a renowned Sydney photographer Harold Cazneaux in 1937. The photograph, titled 'Spirit of Endurance', gained international recognition. It still stands alone and mighty, almost unchanged after 68 years.

Thomas, this is a good shot, the POV and composition are great, I am imaging if this has been taken with infrared filter would make a misty photo as the leaves will turn white the the sky will be dark, anyway, the tree standing alone at the right and the clouds structure have made a beautiful landscape photo, well done!

Very nice landscape, nice composition, splendid sky.

Hello Thomas,

Excellent scene to make a photo. I like so much, but the tree unfortunately you cut a piece.


Still with the top of the tree cut, I think is a great foto. Very good visual impact, and excellent prespective. Beautiful sky. Thanks.

Hi Thomas
Beautiful Aussie scenery with such and amazing sky. Excellent DOV. Pity the top of the tree is slightly cropped out but well done anyway.
Regards Toni

Magnificent composition. Amazing what you do with the elements "tree", "sky" and "mountains".
Great shot.

You've got a winner here Thomas. The composition is really excellent, with the tree on the right (too bad you cut off the top). And just look at that fantastic sky and those beautiful mountains. A stunning landscape. Makes me wanna go to OZ. Well done & TFS!

Very nice landscape Thomas. Your POV is superb. Well done. Thanks

Stunning sky and wonderful tree.
Yes, I agree that the top of the tree should not have been cut off, but that's my only problem with it.
Congrats on being the featured artist!
