Mother nature did a great job long before man found new ways to shape the trees through espalier, topiary and bonsai. She was perfect in sculpting herself alone.
Some of the most wonderful examples for such natural shaped phenomena can be spotted at Slope Point which is the southernmost point of the South Island of New Zealand.
The slope point is situated 2,982 miles from the South Pole. This place is full of heavy winds that have had uninterrupted long journeys for thousands of miles through the air of Antarctica. As seen in the image above, the growth of the trees in this area is affected by the heavy winds. Thus, the trees are bent to the ground.
