Pieman River 4 - Gum (boot) Tree

Much as I try and take photography seriously - I can't resist I visual gag when I find one.

This tree was 'growing' in the garden of the huts that cluster around the mouth of the Pieman River.


This is clearly a Gum(boot) Tree!

Although, I think if it was in the UK it would be Wellingtonia!

You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

What a cool find, a boot tree. I am sure it is one of a kind too. Have a happy Monday!

Hi Stewart,
This is very nice to see.
All boots to hang on the branches of the tree.
Best regards, Irma

I wonder if the tree's soul is groaning. Poor guy.

Even a serious (and seriously good) photographer is allowed to have a sense of humor.

I have heard of the shoe tree before but haven't seen one until today (just kidding). What a fun find.

I was going to try to be clever also and say the tree was a "gum-shoe" which is another word for a detective, but there are really no shoes...just rubbers, or wellington boots. :-) Oh well, I think you were the clever one. Cute post!
