Photo of the Day


These 5,000-year-old trees have emerged on a beach in Mid Wales after peat was washed away during the recent storms. Thought to date back to the Bronze Age, the shin-high stumps became visible for the first time when the peat which once covered them was washed away in torrential rain and waves pounding the shore. The oak and yew stumps were once part of a forest that covered the whole area before it turned into a peat bog and was eventually overwhelmed by water.
