The Dead Trees of Mundun

The stories say that back in the 1600’s these oak trees, situated behind the old (now disused) church, were used to hang people. They lived until 1953 when the sea broke the seas defenses and flooded the area, killing the trees. They really are a spooky, strange sight with their crooked dead limbs stretching up into the sky. Definitely a place to revisit when the weather is a bit better.

Here’s a black and white and long exposure shot as well:
