photoblog image Vilnius - Castle Hill

Vilnius - Castle Hill

 

This was an in-camera tweak, which I thought worked - now I'm not so sure!  In their wisdom, the city authorities of Vilnius had decided to remove the trees on the hill to restore it to its "original" (disregarding the fact that a funicular runs up the hill!) state. Now they find, surprise, surprise, that wind, rain and snow are eroding the hiil and that what is left of the castle is now at risk! A prime example of the sense of the dictum: Leave well alone!

I am a staunch advocate of that dictum, Tom...I often use it as an excuse for my inertia... smile
Ah humans in all their wisdom!

It certainly is suffering, Tom
(sigh) The wisdom of Mother Nature is better left unquestioned, indeed!

If it aint broke, don't fix it! This is a motto I live with Tom, and it serves me very well..
I thought that by now most people have twigged that trees are very good at holding the ground stable.
But surely local authorities know every thing, don't they?
A triumph for stupidity then Tom
