Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree

Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree in the Botanical Gardens in Koloa, Kauai.

(Click on the photo to enlarge it.)

The Rainbow Eucalyptus tree has this beautifully colored bark. Patches of outer bark are shed annually at different times, showing the bright-green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to give blue, purple, orange and then maroon tones.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, EF24-105mm f/4L lens, 1/60 sec at f/9.5, ISO 640 on SanDisk Extreme IV Digital Film.

    1. Thanks Shari. We saw this tree in Kauai 5 years ago and I wanted to go back and see it again and get some close up shots of the bark and its amazing colors.

  1. This is incredible! Looks like a Morris Louis painting and even better as it’s nature itself….beautiful!

  2. Cool pix. Love to see a grove of trees with this appearance. The photo is like an piece of abstract art!
