The mightiest tree in the forest, an Irish woodland.

A recent visit through an Irish woodland saw me find and photograph the mightiest tree in the forest, pictured here.

It can't be done, to cut down this tree with a herring - I thought to myself.

Well, I did find a shrubbery before finishing up on my quest to photograph this fine, green place.

I saw a red squirrel scurrying along the ground then up into the safety of the branches, in the distance a dark barked and I met a man named Roger.

Mostly there was an echoey, eerie silence to the mountaintop forest but it is a place to where I have returned many times to photograph.
