Coastal Banksias, west coast, Tasmania, Australias island state…..
Twisted, warped, aged……and windswept…..these tough old trees hang in there while nature, in the form of the Roaring Forties winds, tries to uproot everything in its path. No other tree grows this close to the coastline, other than tea trees…..and in an effort to survive, they gradually lean with the wind, and form these gnarly trunks…….
Banksias are really Cool!!
