Calm before the storm

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Javier Garcia Marcos

This photo was taken just minutes before a huge storm started to pour water over us. The lone tree stands defiant in the middle of the field. Alone and far from the protection from the other trees, the always present wind has shaped it in a distinctive way. In the back, we can see the mountains surrounding Killarney.

Location: Killarney National Park, Co. Kerry, Ireland
