The Australian Eukalyptus, or Gum, trees are mostly an interesting, scenic experience. As a European, I am used to see trees with dark barks, very few are light. So the German idea of a forrest is a dark, moist place.
The Australian forrests are very light, even the rain forrest are still quite sunny. But the lightest, most friendly looking of all the trees I came across, is the Ghost Gum, named by it's ghostly bark colour.
Together with the blue skies, red rocks and their own green leaves they will make pretty pictures under almost any circumstances. This one grows in Kings Canyon.
