Thanks Ken. Yes a tree. Acacias are a large family worldwide. The wattle trees are the Australian versions (and the Golden Wattle is our national floral emblem). When you see giraffes on the African Savannah, the trees that they are munching on are generally acacias too (although they usually have big thorns and aggressive ants. The trees that is, not the giraffes!). Google images with acacia africa and you will see the resemblence.

Here's a shot of the wattle in flower...

OK, I won't tell you. Twisted Evil

Actually its just outside my boundary fence. You can just see the top of a fence post bottom-left. The cliff face here is only small. Just upstream another 100 metres or so, its much more dramatic.
