Slope Point, New Zealand

Another interesting place found while on my random research. (Something I've been doing to try to get my mind off tRump and all his insanity.)


Slope Point is a very apt name for this southernmost tip of New Zealand where the trees grow sideways and slope to the ground. It's all due to the heavy winds that occur all day every day.

Slope Point is sparsely inhabited, apart from the sheep that dot the landscape. Sheep farmers planted the trees to give their flock shelter from the immense strength of the wild winds.

My niece Wendy spent time in New Zealand and she told me that the same winds attack a waterfall near the Milford Sound on the South Island. Here you see how the waterfall is being blown backward up the cliff due to the high coastal winds.

That’s pretty interesting. Thanks for the brief escape.

All I have to say about this is: "WOW"
I never knew something like that existed.
The fact that sheep can tolerate it is quite something else also.
Thank you.

New Zealand has always been the highest on my bucket list. Those winds really have to be powerful. Give the people and the sheep props on finding a way to live in those conditions.

From my friend Jan ...

What cool trees! There are Divi Divi trees in Aruba that grow like that from the constant winds in the Caribbean. I always thought they were beautiful!

Those trees in NZ sure make a good cover for the sheep! Thanks for sharing!

I have seen trees that are shaped by the wind in that fashion, but for the life of me I can't think where. I am sure the sheep appreciate the protection they offer from the gales that blow onshore.

What a great name for the Point. I loved NZ on our brief trip there. One of the most beautiful places in the world I think.

So many fascinating places in the world I’d love to visit. Maybe in my next life.

Like Joared, I'd like to see that in my next life. I was quite taken with some trees in Italy and some banyan trees in Hawaii. I've seen photos of trees in Africa - maybe Socotra - that are really weird.

Afraid your girlfriend is cheating on you? CONTRACTHACKERS can get you into her email and social media accounts; that is, if you don't mind sliding past legal or ethical boundaries.

If you're looking to monitor an iPhone or an Android device, you can use some rooted application like the Copy9app to hack and monitor the phone. The app has a paid version (not sure of the price now).

CYBERCREDITGURU has been amazing to work with! They have creative, knowledgeable professional hackers that make the entire process a great experience. I am a widow with 3 children. I started working with CYBERCREDITGURU two years ago when I had a very poor credit score of 403, with negatives, late payments and evictions. I couldn’t afford a loan to even pay off my basic bills for the up keep of my children. Life was so terrible then. I came across a highly rated reviews about them online and I contacted them on CYBERCREDITGURU (AT) GMAIL DOT COM and phone/text: +1 (650) 439 0624. Lo and behold they got my FICO score raised to 805 and every other negative item cleared within 6 days after following all instructions. Last week I contacted them again for my daughter’s school grade and they got it upgraded excellently within 3 days. I recommend CYBERCREDITGURU to all who have hacking related issues. They are the BEST!
