I saw this tree while out walking in Glentanar, and it really caught my eye. The contrast between it and the healthy green trees around it is very marked.
I found this poem that I thought might go well with this picture:
The Dead Tree
Spring is a mockery to it;
But in the winter it shall bear the snows
And rear aloft its stark and hopeless branches
As bravely as another.
__Thomas E. Moore.
