I was going to suggest; It's a fungus (!!!?) but then paused and looked it up on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ombú

And there is says: The ombú is a massive evergreen herb....

I don't really get this. Herbs are usually used in cooking, but this Ombú is poisonous!

Whatever: it is a powerful, strong and a bit mean looking plant! Almost like out of a Science Fiction-movie! It is, however, a good photograph, well framed and with a special perspective to it!

He, he. It's in fact a fantastic "herb". Nothing mean. More info: Ombú
And a whole pick (not mine) here:
