    From the Roaring Forties

    A picture to go with the winds that we've been having; why are they all from the West?

    Great capture of 'the wind' Stan. When I was down your way I certainly noticed the wind pruning. We get the same on Tassie's west and south coasts.
    Looks like a real enchanted forest, the trees certainly 'speak to you'.

    Wow, that's some strong winds you have there. And I agree with Nick - that forest is straight out of a fairy tale.

    fantastic depiction of the wind strength, and beaut BW, it really gives added depth to the trees and the tree trunks.

    Thanks, folks; there's wind-shear like this all along the coast. It's quite amazing inside the trees also.
    I want to use some IR here when I get off these b----y crutches.

    Another view of the same group of trees; the sky wasn't being cooperative this time.

    these are terrific Stan. Those poor old trees have copped a lashing over the years. Look great in mono too.
