Tired tree remains on riverbed

Tired tree remains on riverbed

by Jacopo Furlanetto

When floods rage in the Meduna river, in Friuli Venezia Giulia Region (Italy), trees are ripped from their houses and dragged on the rocks by the raging waters. Eventually, in this desert of white stones, some of the trees are left like defeated warriors, trying to rise and stand up one more time under the fading sun.

The Meduna river is a peculiar ecosystem, a vast land of white rocks from time to time overwhelmed by floods.
