Scots pine or Pinus sylvestris is a native tree to Ireland, it grows tall and graceful with a reddish colour to its wood.

Ireland's waterfalls are often famous, places such as Torc and Glenariff are Ireland's best known and most visited. Here, one of Ireland's lesser known and least visited waterfalls, a veil of water falling over a precipice in the Irish countryside.

Few autumn landscape scenes can be more alluring to the photographer than a woodland stream with waterfall.
