The Arrayan Tree of Chilean Patagonia

ArrayanHDR (1)The Arrayan or Chilean Murtle is a very beautiful and exotic red barked tree which grows in very specific areas throughout southern Chile. They grow very slowly and form interestingly twisted and deformed trunks. I had attempted unsuccessfully to photograph them on several earlier trips but, finally got around to trying some HDRs on them recently and that appears to be the key to effectively capturing their beauty. Technology to the rescue!
