The winds up here in the North of Ireland have been incredibly strong lately, always a time to worry if you want to set sail or go deep into the woods, last thing you would want is to camp under a widowmaker! There was one tree I always admired in a place where I walk, it is a huge sycamore and I'm sure was a couple of hundred years old, well I walked past it today and here it lies..
cleft completely in three parts, I could only imagine the devastation if someone had been underneath it when it came down
such a mighty beast fallen by nothing but air!!
did it make a sound when it fell????
