I was fascinated by this solitary Araucaria tree, growing on such a steep peak.
That's not very common and it shows the indomitable spirit of Nature and its children.

The Araucarias can live up to 500 years and that one is probably over a hundred years old.
So, I thought I'd pictured it in the style of early 20th century photographs.

The fog added a ghostly, surreal atmosphere, which was suiting.

Early morning in Urubici, southern Brazil. Altitude approx. 1200m.
Hope you enjoy and always feel free to comment. :)
Wallpaper available for some points.

I love this. I love the solitary tree and the sense of almost loneliness.

A beguiling darkness; a highly atmospheric composition with an impressive textural depth.
