Very nice shot. I think this really shows how the wind has influenced the shape of this tree as it was growing.

I like how the eye travels up the tree taking a sharp left along with the tree.

Thanks for the comments! Sky was very hazy because of the heavy "vog" (like smog, except caused by particulate matter from the volcanic eruption on the other side of the island).

Very nice capture. I like the tropical looks of Palm trees.

Paniolo,
Absolutely eye-catching. That meandering trunk is a far cry from those you see on postcards but for this photo that's what makes it so special.
