Photographer's Note

High in Slovakia's beautiful High Tatras I was struck to see the devastion that had been caused by a hurricane that hit the area on 19th November 2004. Vast tracts of the once forested mountainside were clear felled of their tees and only now is nature making a comeback.

Standing out against the evening sky, these solitary pines are some of the only trees left from the 13,000ha of lost forest.

The power of nature.
