Wow Brian is this tree growing right out of that rock? I suppose it is, your title might indicate that, I guess. Such an unusual sight, and you've captured it very well. nicely framed as well. I just keep looking at this!:)

regards, ~~Sarah~~

Yes, Sarah, amazingly, this tenacious tree has gained a 'foothold' on bare rock and seems to be thriving. I'm hoping it will still be there when I revisit in June. Want to make a bet?!

Best wishes, Brian.

Thanks very much, Katarina. Photo was taken summer 2011. Was here again summer 2012 and, despite gale-force winds during the year, tree still here and thriving!
