Photographer's Note

I shot this image on the coastline between Ballyvaughan and Kinvara in north county Clare recently. I saw this isolated Whitethorn tree leaning over a characteristic Burren stone wall. The tree is leaning in this way due to the force of the winds over many years. Since the prevailing winds in Ireland blow in from the south west, trees like this usually lean in a north east direction, parhaps useful to know if you get lost!

PP: Cropped a little in Picasa, adjusted contrast, sharpened, and framed with Photoshop.
