Close-up of the so-called "Salamander Tree", a mangrove tree at Salamander Bay, Port Stephens, Karuah River, New South Wales, situated around 50 km NE of Newcastle, NSW, Australia. It has become a kinda famous, highly coveted subject over recent years, no doubt. This shot was taken during high tide and shortly after sunset.
