This acacia tree was something that completely fascinated me.  Its not one of the best pictures that I have taken but I think this is really an artistic picture.  I couldn’t believe how half of the tree was alive and the other half seemed completely dead.  The tree isn’t split or cut anywhere but it seems to be living in harmony with half of the tree living perfectly fine and the other half living dead.

Look at how green the tree is on the left and how the other side is completely the opposite.  Another thing about Acacia trees that I found interesting was the fact that they always seem to be very green in comparison to the surrounding landscape.  This has to do with the fact that acacia trees has extensive and deep roots underground.
