Five stunning photos that will make you want to buy Richard Woldendorp’s The Tree

Acclaimed landscape photographer Richard Woldendorp’s latest book, The Tree, has just been published by Fremantle Press.

An ode to Australian trees, this stunning photography book celebrates the tree in all its glory.

Woldendorp said, ‘Travelling throughout Australia, I was confronted by, and aware of, trees. I was always surprised by their diversity and how Australian trees had adjusted to the landscape and the weather conditions. There were so few roads in the outback, so I decided to photograph from the air, which is the best way to show the variation and the evolution of an age-old continent.’

Below, we’re giving you a sneak peak of five of the most stunning images from this beautiful book.

1. Though Australia is best known for its hot-climate flora, it is also home to some frost-tolerant species too, such as these snow gums. Snowy Mountains, Victoria.
