Day 7 Photo Blog – Let’s go BIG

Leave a comment

My instruction are Today, let’s go big. Photograph something of massive size, inside or outside.

Well, Australia is known for it’s BIG THINGS, like the BIG Pineapple, the BIG Prawn, the BIG Merino and the BIG Banana to name just a few. Travelling through South Australia I came across this BIG old tree near Orroroo. It’s a giant red gum thought to be over 500 years old. It measures nearly 11 metres around the trunk.

And then I thought about the BIG Boab Tree near Derby in the Kimberley’s of Western Australia

So on my drive into Campbell Town, Tasmania yesterday I stopped and photographed this tree. No, it’s not particularly BIG, but it does have a prominent position in this photo that makes it appear bigger than it is.

At Harvey Dickson’s Country Music Centre near Boyup Brook in Western Australia there’s a BIG guitar –

These dainty little orchids I photographed at Lake Indoon in Western Australia look so much bigger than they are as I discovered the Macro setting on my camera that allowed me to get up close and personal –
