The White Tree

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Sujata De

The ancient mountain town of Girona has an annual flower festival, Temps de Flors, where the town is decorated with flowers. This year, there was a fire which burnt down an entire square filled with wooden crates of flowers and a tree, which was charred white! The white tree continued to stand amidst the devastation and looked glorious. To me, it seemed like a symbol of the undaunted spirit of humanity.

Location: Girona, Spain
