Austral Beech

I did not expect meeting so many big trees in Patagonia. The beeches, famous for their horizontal branches, are particularly common there… 

This one, growing a bit separate from the others at the edge of the forest, covered all the available space… Its foliage reflecting the blue sky brings coolness in this sunny clearing, displaying much yellower greens.
