Things of Stone and Wood

Things of Stone and Wood

I love this tree, clinging to it's rocky perch on the top of The Blade at Cape Pillar, Tasmania. I know that the wind was hurricane force (118 kph) a couple of days before I was there - who knows what wind speeds it has stood up to in other seasons. But I must confess this photo was taken as an afterthought. I was in a hurry to get moving, having other plans for the remainder of the day. I'd spent quite a long time with other shots, but I couldn't leave without just one of this tree. Now I am a little sorry that I didn't spend more time with it. (I promise - I'll be back!)
