Arbol Bandera (Pic du Jour)

Arbol Bandero on the Beagle Channel, 31-Jan-2013

This is what locals call an arbol bandera, or flag tree, a name stemming from the shape it’s given by the relentless pounding of ceaseless wind. This in near the Estancia Harberton on the Beagle Channel, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, about 85 kilometers east of Ushuaia. I hugged the one on the right.

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme is ‘Unique’. I think this tree fits quite nicely. Then again, many things here at the end of the world would probably fit well, too.

    The one to the right looks humanesque; it’s feet firmly planted, arms stretched back, and its hair blowing in the wind!
