After a hectic day on the beach the sun sets behind a lone palm tree facing the calm seas in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote.
A tree wrapped in a woven covering with the peace sign on it in Reykjavik. Anyone know the story behind it?

Last February we spent a weekend in Bantry where I made a couple of very nice shots when I drove into the hills surrounding the town. The area was so nice that I wandered up the road on foot a few yards for a better shot of this lone tree. I was disgusted to see the beige boxes of a PC and monitor lying half hidden in the tall grass of the bog.
Perhaps I should have climbed down and retrieved them but Adam was asleep in the car and we were miles from anywhere. I didn’t want to risk slipping and hurting myself. It’s such a shame those electronics weren’t recycled at the local dump. I wonder what Gardai would find if they looked at the drive in that PC. I wonder if they’d care?
Tomorrow – AJ tried booking Robodock tickets for himself but could only book for the 12 noon show. I thought we could pay at the entrance but obviously it’s popular and booked up. Maybe the bad weather will keep people away but I should be there before 3pm! Keep an eye on my Twitter account for updates!
Must pack WordPress stickers and badges, stickers and badges, stickers and badges…

One of the many trees growing in the arid desert surrounding the ranch Automattic stayed in while in Arizona.
Just over a month ago, some of the trees around here still had leaves. I took the camera with me one evening when we went for a walk around the park.
The leaves were a lovely bright and vibrant colour, but obviously this has been a little touched up in the GIMP afterwards! 🙂
It’s cold out there and the trees are almost bare. Some leaves still hang on however!
Mushrooms grow from the roots of a tree in Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork. I just loved the colour and texture of the fungus, especially in the light of the sunset behind me.
