Photographer's Note

A massive windstorm swept across north Slovakia and caused forest damage in several districts in 2004.
The most heavily damaged area was Tatra National Park, the pearl of the Carpathian Mountains, natural and cultural symbol of Slovakia, established in 1949. The wind that reached 173 km per hour, literally swept the south slopes of the National Park covered mostly by 40-110 year-old spruce forest.

Now is better than earlier but still it's sad view.
