A dry tree in the middle of rainforest. When a tree falls more light reaches the ground, and the plants down there start rapid growth as they compete there share of light.
This shot was taken from Skyrail Rainforest Cableway between Kuranda and coastal lowlands. The cableway ride includes two stops at rainforest mid-stations with guided paths.

The view from the Skyrail! Wasn't the ride wonderful? I felt almost like a bird flying above the trees. Amazing view of the dry tree among other.
The trip to Kuranda is really fantastic adventure.
Warm regrads MAlgo

A magnificent and original image, awesome abundant vegetation, where everything is so green, except for the dry tree, which stands in fantastic fashion set, with a formidable graphics.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better.
Have a good day.

A fine view of the forest canopy for the dead elderly citizen's intricate limbs contrasting with the dense forest surrounding, and eventually returning nutrients for new growth.
Thanks for sharing,

The dead tree is a beautiful silver appearance in the green tropical forest.
That Skyrail must have given you lots of wonderful opportunities to view the forest from a different and unique level.
Best regards, Paul

Beautiful shot of the jungle from Australia. I hope to see it myself soon. I missed many of your shot from here. I love the perspective here from up high looking deep down and these tree are really tall. Must be hard to get any light down there the forest is so dense. Excellent details throughout of all the different trees, the dead tree really stand out with its white branches and trunk.

Hello Kari - A sky cable-way gives you a wonderful opportunity to photograph the rain forest from an elevated angle and what a lovely shot you share here. The dead tree stands out against the lush greenness of the forest . I like the square framing and tightly packed composition.
