Antarctic Beech by DrewHopper Antarctic Beech by DrewHopper
Antarctic beech stand draped in hanging moss, simply phenomenal. This is a surreal dreamland of international and national significance for its biological and landscape values. It was listed on the World Heritage register in 1986 in recognition of its outstanding universal value to science and conservation, in particular the importance of the area as a refugium that has allowed the survival and evolution of rainforest species over geological time. Just wandering along the tracks you get a real feel for being over in the US, strolling through the Oregon forests. I have definitely found my new 'happy place', and will be spending a lot more time here adventuring deeper into the escarpment in the coming months.

What do you want to use the image for, over what period of time and what size file would you require? These factors all determine how much I license an image for...

You don't find Nothofagus moorei in the US, do you? I thought they only grew in Australia, in the Northern Rainforests.

I can share your enthusiasm dude - two years back i hiked through the tasmanian forests. This was the first time i saw and read about antarctic beeches. (I know you are in the new england NP) But you´ve forgot to mention where this place is in your description =D
