Photo 101 : Day 8 – The Natural World


Following on from yesterday’s photos of the Drake Sail, this is a shot taken further down the river, at Drake’s Pool, where many boats are moored and sheltered by the natural harbour and the bend in the river,  keeping the worst of the winds from the sea away.

Then again, nature is not always kind and serene, and during a very severe storm in Ireland earlier this year, many large old trees like this one were destroyed by the force of nature.

    I’m not sure that ‘beautiful’ is the right word for the fallen down tree, but it’s the first one that came to mind.

    Wow that tree makes such a stunning subject. I’ve seen a few fallen trees before but not any with so much of the trunk still standing up from the ground, it makes it really interesting to stare at.
