Baileys Rocks, Wimmera: nature’s strange contrasts 

If I didn’t know otherwise, I would think this is a photo of a rock, but it’s actually the trunk of an old gum tree. On the left side, the bark had peeled back to reveal smooth waves, but on the right side lichen had colonised the surface. 

Speaking of contrasts, the last time I saw Baileys Rocks the creek was bone dry and the mosses were parched. After recent decent rains, the mosses were plump with water and the water burbled through the rocks.
