Submerged forest at Borth, West Wales.

As a result of the winter storms a submerged forest has reappeared – basically the sand covering the forest has been washed away but will gradually cover it up. If you want to see it go now. At low tide!

I found it quite difficult finding out more about the forest. A good site I came across was http://www.ceredigioncoastpath.org.uk/secret places/submerged forest.

The forest attracted quite a few visitors even though the weather was awful.

Tree stump.

Because of the prospects of wind, rain and salt I left my DSLR and took my pocketable Sony RX100.

The forest is thousands of years old but the trees are not fossilised, just incredibly well preserved.

This photo reminds me of those you see on the news of people looking at a washed up whale.
