Trees on a foggy day

These are a few photos from the Mount Tomah botanic garden on the foggy day I was there. I hope you enjoy them.
The gorgeous tree above is a Cornish Elm a.k.a. Ulmus angustifolia var. cornubiensis (now thatís a mouthful and a half!). It is native to south-west England.
I like the silhouettes of fuzzy lichen off the tree on the right in this photo. I took this shot from the Boardwalk.
Ghostly trees beyond slick basalt seen along the Forest Walk. Basalt caps the peak on which the botanic garden sits.
Hereís the alder tree from the Residence Garden. The low, thick branches stick out almost horizontally. Itís a wonder they donít droop to the grass. Love this tree!
Looming trees obscured by fog. Those are maple leaves on the left and rhododendron leaves peeking out on the bottom right.
Soaring eucalyptus trees seen through the trellis in the Formal Garden.
