Deciduous Beech (Nothofagus gunnii), Australia’s only winter deciduous tree. Photos taken late May (18/05/2014) road side below Lake Fenton. Up top near Robert Tarn it was 90% gone (dropped all leaves) but lower down it still had good colour.
Tasmanian, used to ski downhill since late 1960s till I took up alpine snowboarding in about 1987 (that is hard boots, plate bindings, Olympics snowboard GS style, carving). My local resorts are Mt Mawson (of course!) and Ben Lomond.
