This tamarind, known as the Combed Tree, is already a touristic point on the coast of Piauí and is placed by the roadside. It has grown up with a different shape for the constant wind that blows from East to West most part of the year.

Ah, já vi uma dessas, mas em Jericoacoara. Deve ser uma espécie típica da região, ou então o mesmo sujeito que fez a decoração nas duas. Muito boa a imagem, bem nítida. Preferiria um enquadramento um pouco mais abrangente, sem cortar as pontas dos galhos. E também não gostei muito do jegue dormindo em cima dos galhos, mas em geral ficou tudo muito bom.

À voir cet arbre, on peut facilement dire la direction des vents dominants de cet endroit. Mais, le plus étonnant, c'est de voir qu'il tient debout malgré ses branches horizontales. Belle prise de vue. Bien fait.

An interesting tree, well shaped from the constant winds. The plain behind is well framed by this tree and its shadow. The trees in the background seem to be well protected from the strong wind here.

fascinating the view as the presentation of the Tamarind that really must be the main touristic point of the area.I like its excellent placement in the frame as its panoramic view of the phenomenon.

I understand your notes, I live on 20 km of the North Sea also here are almost all trees oblique through the north wind.
But your picture is wonderful, pleasant to look at.
Your picture exudes calm, excellent sharp and clear.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

incroyable la forme de cet arbre qui laisse à penser qu'il penche du côté où il va tomber, mais non, une belle ombre pour faire une pause du soleil, et comme j'adore les arbres, je trouve en lui une élégance
merci de ce partage

A la vista de esta esplendida composicion, no tenemos que preguntarnos de donde sopla el viento, sorprendente como ha modelado este arbol, como si de una escultura se tratase, me gusta mucho tu POV, con la llanura y la linea del horizonte bajo el arbol.
Un perfecto colorido, muy natural.
Magnifica imagen muy luminosa y con una óptima nitidez.
Buen trabajo. Me encanta.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Very funny looking tree, wow, must be alot of wind in the area to push the tree completely to one side. I have seen many trees on our coast, leaning toward inland because of the wind from the ocean, but never this much. Amazing it still stands. Excellent quality shot with good sharpness, natural color and good light.

Poderia ser chamada também de pé-de-vento pois dá prá perceber de que lado o vento soprou com força aí. Linda e exótica árvore e muito boa foto.

Quite a fascinating tree for sure, I've never seen one like it before...definitely windswept! :) Amazing what the forces of nature can produce, and it seems impossible that it would still be standing with this incredibly unbalanced posture. A really neat and original entry for TE. Bravo! Have a great day ahead. All the best.

Unusual shape the tree has taken as it appears to be perpetually windy and gusty. The soil and the sky contrast well...an unusual beauty from nature...TFS

This is such an amazing sight, a tree that seems to be completely ignoring the forces of gravity!
I love how you have made it fill the f/g so that we have sharp details of its trunk and branches as well as its stature. Your composition allows it to cover the whole countryside, like a huge, natural parasol!
Have a lovely day,

Splendide la forme de cet arbre, comme un toit au dessus du paysage, étrange et beau a la fois
PaulVDV (23949) 2014-11-11 11:43
Excellent composition. Beautiful with the piece of blue sky between the branches of the tree and the horizon.
In this large plain this tree provides good shelter during the hot days.
Best regards, Paul

a very effective composition with the tamarind's trunk leaning inwards from the bottom right corner and its upper body reaching across the frame. This is a wonderful description of the tree's particular character and I also like how you are have allowed a clear, deep view into the landscape as well. The alternation of light and shadow adds interest, the colours are lovely. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Interesting view on this tree influenced by the wind
Perhaps a little bit a wider position to show the top

I picked this one because it tells a story quite nicely. Although it looks calm today, I can imagine the wind this lonely tree has had to struggle against to grow. The framing is very tight, but you've presented it well with the skyline behind. Even though the tree is the main attraction, it almost serves as a natural frame to the shot. Beautiful colours and sharp detail. Very impressive.
