Beautiful! It looks like it is peeking around the rock to see who’s there.
It’s another tree that’s famous in the area amongst photographers.
That must be SOME wind to cause the tree to grow like that. I wonder how long it can hold on. Birch trees around here don’t age well, under that kind of stress. But I am always impressed when I see a tree make it in spite of the obstacles… It is surely encouraging to see them succeed.
It may very well be an effect from the very local rock formations, funnelling the wind in a particular way.
Good morning Stephen,
Many thanks for your visit to my blog. I am glad that you enjoyed.
You do some beautiful work. I really like the silver birch with it’s form and placement.
Thank you for your kind comments!
Strange tree indeed 🙂 Does it live ON the rocks or somewhere inbetween? I really cannot decide from the photo (which of course makes it interesting) 🙂
On the rocks but presumably it’s roots take nourishment/moisture from cracks in the rocks. Next time I’m up there, I’ll try to remember to shinny up there and check it out – there may be another photo opportunity up there too! 😉
I’ve posted another image of the same tree I took winter time last year.
How tenacious is that?! Like your composition and the feel of the photo, the rocks with their mossy weathering, yet tree fills the space so perfectly.
Some say photography is about ‘Location, location, location’ – in this case it probably was!
