|This beautifully symetrical and photogenic tree was snapped by many photographers.|

Then in January, the bush fires went through and my lovely tree didn't come through unscathed.
Unfortunately it lost some limbs.
Imagine how I felt when I drove passed it today to discover that it had been chopped down.
I wonder if the other photographers will feel as sad as I do over the demise of our beloved tree.
As a postscript, Robert Todd wrote the following:
Ode to an old friend.
oh old tree, laying in pieces down in the field,
we will remember you, when you stood tall,
not covered in leaves, no none at all !
just grace of your old branches shooting up
into the blue sky and standing so tall.
