Windswept Cabbage Trees

Cabbage trees in the dunes of Wharariki Beach. As so much of New Zealands forests had been destroyed and converted into eroding graslands for sheep and cattle, Wharariki makes no exception. The eternal strong westerly flow at this spot turns most trees into wind-bent shapes. The cabbage tree, in particular, is dancing in the wind like a cheerleader.
