Speckled sky


During yesterday's visit to the Lava Tree State Park I tried to take a panorama of the canopy above the park because it looks so spectacular. Unfortunately, the Hugin software didn't work too well although it made a valiant attempt, I will try again another day. The picture above is actually output from Hugin, but the area I pictured was much larger.

When you look straight up at the sky from the trail in the park it looks very strange, I can't think of the right word to describe it, but it's as striking as anything I can think of. Unfortunately, I don't know the species of tree that creates the canopy. Can anyone help me out? Is it Albizia?

Cool effect! Reminds me of some types of art nouveau illustrations, incredibly ornate and yet oddly tidy.

I do not know the tree at all, but I can tell you that the picture above doesn’t look at all like a photo, but a painting. Very intriguing.

I think it's a tree.

(I'm no arborist... sue me ;)
