WordPress Photo Challenge : Monument

This may not be a monument in the same category as the Taj Mahal or Eiffel Tower but it is a monument to the power of the wind and how nature can adapt and still survive.

A classic example of going with the flow.

Windswept trees of the Greenhough Plains

The information about the trees

We noticed these trees as we drove to Geraldton. Greenough is only 20 minutes south of Geraldton and is a small historic settlement, so we will be coming back to explore this area after we have settled into our new home. 

In the meantime I would like to present these trees as my interpretation of this weeks WP Photo challenge

    • I think the reader has a problem or two some times, some one else mentioned that photos don’t always show. I think the “Happiness Engineers” may have been tweaking things at their end… 😦

    • Yes the wind is strong in these parts, in fact Geraldton is known as the wind surfing mecca as the winds are so strong and constant and the sun is always shining.
