 The Gearagh
(a submerged glacial woodland and nature reserve) 

The ancient tree stumps of the Gearagh exposed in low water.

The Gearagh area, near Macroom (Co. Cork), was flooded in 1954 to facilitate the building of two hydro-electric dams in Carrigadrohid and Inniscarra, which provide electricity for the nearby city of Cork. The area is now part of the plants' upper reservoir. The development required the flooding of the region; consequently, hundreds of trees were felled and many people were relocated. Many of the trees were centuries old and had grown since the medieval period.[5] Today only their stumps survive, in flood land, giving the area a ghostly and almost lunar appearance.[4]Read more of this Wikipedia article here.

I think this guy was listening to me!

Early spring colour.

Looks like an impossible reflection

The sun catches this robin on the ground


So many ancient tree stumps
