When traveling through New Zealand we were amazed how these two little islands had nearly every ecosystem on the planet: volcanoes, glaciers, marshes, rain forests, and more. One area we visited along the northwest coast of North Island had beautiful beaches with black sand, caused by the volcanic area further inland. This area is dotted with farms but in some spots the winds are so hard and constant that the trees grow bent toward the east. Some, like those shown in Monuments, lose all their leaves, but many remain standing, as if they won't let the wind win. I thought these wind and sand bleached trunks were beautiful additions to the landscape that deserved to be featured.
This painting is gallery wrapped, where the image continues around the sides. No frame is required.
