Crumbling Cliffs and Walls, and Snowdrops

ImageLast week I went with Charlotte to Dunwich wood to visit the snowdrops there. This picture is from the edge of the cliffs, which keep falling bit by bit, year by year, into the sea.

A few hundred yards inland lie the ruins of the old friary, with their crumbling walls. They’re atmospheric enough, but I pay more attention to the trees and plants than the ruins and so was pretty pissed off to see that some of the trees had been cut down to make the ruined wall more visible.

Why do people want to keep looking at the ruins of civilisation? And removing trees to do so?

You don’t have to answer that question.
