A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Our outlook.

It was late in the afternoon, with a cracker of a thunderstorm looming,  the thick cloud in the west changing the colour of the dying sun, and I thought I'd see if I could get a glimpse of the storm hitting the accomodation buildings a few kilometres away.

I couldn't, but the colours of the trees across the road were interesting enough, and provide a bit of a profile of the sort of mix of vegetation in the area.   The trees to the right are eucalypts, growing naturally on the waterway beyond.   The palm is a Bangalow I think, native to a coastal region a few hundred kilometres south, but found here in reasonable numbers, and the lower part of the shot is the top of a poinciana, originally from Madagascar I think, but adopted as one of our own.   It's about to lose its leaves as it does at the beginning of every summer, before breaking out in a blanket of orange-red flowers.

Pretty, and completely different of course from what I see.
