Windswept

This is at Slope Point, the southernmost point on New Zealand's South Island. The winds circle the great circumpolar Southern Ocean unimpeded for 2000 miles until they slam into land here. They are so constant and so ferocious that the trees are permanently warped into these gnarled, windswept shapes.

 

I Photoshopped a barbed wire fence out of the foreground. Just because I felt like it, that's why. :-)
