The dead tree – October 4th, 2011

This weekend, I was on a one-day trip to the close Netherlands. I visited a small national park close to Arnhem, not far away from the german border. This dead tree was a wonderful photo motive, I thought:
The dead tree...

Nationaal Park De Hoge Veluwe (English: National Park The Hoge Veluwe) is a dutch national park in the province of Gelderland near the cities of Ede, Arnhem and Apeldoorn. It is approximately 55 square kilometers in area, consisting of heathlands, sand dunes and woodlands. It is situated in the Veluwe, the area of the largest terminal moraine in the Netherlands. Most of the landscape of the park and the Veluwe was created during the last Ice Age. The alternating sand dune areas and heathlands may have been caused by human utilization of the surrounding lands. The park forms one of the largest continuous nature reserves in the Netherlands.
