Photographer's Note

The "Rock Tree" is located in the very remote south bolivian Altiplano at an altitude of about 4.800m. This highly eroded rock formation (also called "Dali Rock" because of the surreal shape and scenery) is about 5 meters high. Because of the small diameter of it's "trunk", Arbol de Piedra is very fragile and therefore it seems to collapse in a blink of an eye - at least from a geological point of view. ;-)
