east and west


"Macbeth shall never vanquish'd be until
Great Birnam wood to high Dunsinane hill
Shall come against him." 
Macbeth Act IV, Scene 1, lines 100-102
 This is the last surviving tree of Birnam Wood of Macbeth fame. It's a big old oak tree, some of the boughs propped up on stilts to stop them falling off and crushing people, I assume. If you need some scale, there is actually a person sitting inside the tree in the first picture - if you look closely you can just see his hands and face. It's a pretty big tree.

 Rumbing Bridge. Boy, does it rumble. I don't have a picture of the huge drop of the waterfall on the other side of the bridge because I felt a bit sick leaning over to look and I couldn't bring myself to hold my camera aloft over such a distance. You'll just have to take my word for the fact that it was impressive.

 I wanted to go swimming here very badly, even though it would no doubt have been bitterly unbearably cold. The water was just so perfectly clear, tumbling fresh from the waterfall.
