Lone tree

Flinders Island is the largest of a set of islands that sit between mainland Australia and Tasmania, in the Bass Strait. As one might expect, not many people live there – the island has a small airport, two towns and many, many sheep. Also native fauna: kangaroos, wallabies, wombats are very easy to find, to the point that driving at night is a bit of a risk.

This lone tree is on the west coast of the island, overlooking Fotheringate Bay with the Strzelecki mountains in the background. It’s a very windy location most of the year, and in the particular day I was there (in May of 2016) it was dangerously so.
