POTD: Fairy Tree

Fairy Tree
Slemish Mountain
County Antrim, Ireland

I posted a color photo of this tree the other day showing the brilliant colors of the countryside. By eliminating color this monochrome version allows emphasizes the twisted shape of the tree which I found quite appealing.

I learned yesterday that these trees are called fairy trees because legend has it they have special power. No one will cut one down for fear of bad luck or calamity. Who knew fairies could be so mean!
