Milsons Point, Sydney

As I was flipping through my images on my hard drive, there was one image from pre-covid lockdowns that really stood out to me. It was an image of the Australian flame tree. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to photograph it because it was so eye-catching.

I thought the natural lighting at that time of the day made the Australian flame tree look more flattering. That tree is one of my favourite Australian trees to photograph because of its fiery-looking colours which makes it stand out against any background.


Why I love this photo featuring the Australian flame tree in Milsons Point, Sydney?

Firstly, I really love the striking colours in this image, especially the reds and blues. I feel these colours is what makes this image grab your attention. It's also nice that one doesn't have to travel very far to see unique trees like this. Secondly, the buildings in the background and the street signs featured in this image gives this image a lovely city and village feel.
