Boab Tree, Western Australia

Boab

5th February, 2013  ·  138 views

The Boab, easily recognized by the swollen base of its trunk, is commonly found in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, and also in the Northern Territory. This particular Boab stood out against the flat land behind it, and I knew it had to be photographed. I first arrived at this scene in the middle of a scorching hot day and decided to go set up camp and come back a bit later at sunset. I’m glad I did!

Not only are those incredible looking trees but this is a gorgeous shot. Great timing with the sunset.
