The Dutch Woods prt14

Calm after the storm prt1

Calm after the storm prt1

Somewhere in February 2013 I visited the Leeuwarder Bos, and did a post in the: The Dutch Woods-series (click here). On the third of August of this year a good friend of mine wanted to show me something special that had happened to this wood. When we got there sadness came upon me. In the beginning of 2014 there had been a huge storm. Lot’s of ‘test-tube-trees’ weren’t strong enough to resist the hard wind-blasts; and had cracked like matches. The place felt like a cemetery. Sad sight; although nature had grown some new branches on the leftovers.

  1. A realistic viewpoint into a world of nature. Raw untouched, as you put it the calm after the storm.

    I say: So sad… The last image in this post (prt5): There is hope.

  3. Yes. such things happen. Such a pity. But the nature is strong, also on the side of the woods. Btw. I really love the song “Calm after the storm” by Common Linnets. πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks; and yes, a pity. That was the song I had in mind when I was thinking of a title. They released a CD shortly after they got 2nd in the Eurovision Song Contest, which is quite nice as well. (The guy with the hat is ‘dumped’ by the lovely lady…)

      • Such a pity he gots dumped. I haven’t anything other songs from them. But I’ll hear into the CD some time. πŸ™‚

  4. The first looks like a dinosaur and the last is simply lovely. Forests are curious places. We have to let them destroy themselves for new growth to happen sometime. True of us, too. Forests make use of everything. Even death.

  5. (This was a reply to a comment of Mr. Mjollnir (“Nice series Harrie but it’s always sad to see the destructive side of nature.“) ; but his comment has unexpectedly left the blog…)

    Thanks; and yes. πŸ™‚
