This is the most bizarre, extreme power line tree trim I have ever seen. Photographed on the Great Alpine Road in the Ovens Valley in North East Victoria, the tree forms part of the avenue leading into the pretty village of Harrietville.
The image unsettles me in the same way a surrealist painting does. For some reason it’s reminding me of Magritte. Any other associations? Bonsai. Tortoring trees as an art form. Or in this case, in the name of progress and convenience.
