Thanks for the comments. I really appreciate them as it is my first post.

River red Gum is the common name of Eucalyptus camaldulensis. A native of Australia. It can grow to a tremendous size and ageand is found near rivers and watercourses across Australia. They provide a favourite subject for photographers here.

Regards clouds, sadly there were none about and although they would have helped the large are of blue sky. I am reluctant to add any for fear of ruining the reflection. For me, the rich reflected blue of the sky is the main subject. If you look closely in the portrait image you will see the moon just above the tree line which gives it just a little kick. Unfortunately I did not notice it until pp otherwise I would have tried to reframe both images to make it more prominent. Next time.
