Possibly that the roots hit semi impearable bedrock for them to fully dig in yet the top soil was still rich enough to support the root system but give them enough hold.

True, but then why are they all so similar and facing the one direction?

Someone said :

Wiki seems to think its a result of human interaction (though its explanation point is a blog) and I recall a documentary recently that had most of the locals link it with a well known eccentric.

A friend of mine has grown some willows in the form of a chair (its still young yet, so a few years to go before its up to being sat on) found this online which I think is very funky

Seal gives shark the slip in great white photo

Wildlife photographer David "Baz" Jenkins seems to have a knack for photographing great white sharks.

His website is filled with pictures of the fearsome predators leaping from the sea and devouring seals.

But a photo Jenkins took during a July shark-watching cruise in South Africa is garnering the Irish photographer so much attention that his website was having trouble keeping up Wednesday after numerous media outlets published his shots.

One photo shows a seal seemingly balanced on the tip of the rising shark's mouth, moments away from becoming a meal. Later photos in the series show the seal twisting away and escaping as the giant shark's jaws snap shut.

"This seal was one lucky pup," Jenkins told Caters News Agency.

The seal was among a group returning to Seal Island off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa, after feeding when the shark struck, he said.

"The breaching sharks are amazing, the speed and agility just takes your breath away as they can explode from below without warning," he told Caters.
