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!!

    Unbelievable David! I feel like I always repeat myself in my comments on your work but this is just so breath taking! Fantastic angle making it have an almost other worldly feel to it. The composition is wonderful with the bent tree being sucked into that beautiful sky. Dead serious, without gushing too much more and causing your head to swell…..this is probably one of my favourite images of yours to date. You keep getting better even when I think that couldn’t be possible. Your talent is really amazing :)

  • It just took me ten minutes to get my head thru the loungeroom door……..LOL
    Geezus, Shells….thats such a lovely thing to say, wonderful words that inspire me no end!!
    Thankyou heaps and heaps!!
