Trees of Mont Tendre
Tendre -- indeed, most of the Swiss Jura -- indeed,
most of Switzerland -- is a treasure house for people who like photographs of
dead and dying trees. That's nearly always a sad thing, and it's been reported
that the Swiss authorities are taking vigorous steps to correct that situation
throughout the country. Nonetheless, dead and diseased trees can be beautiful
may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a
good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught
up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.
