[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo is a requiem for all those Hungarian children who lost their lives in a tragic bus accident a few days ago near Verona, Italy.

Species info: Monkey puzzle tree (Araucaria araucana). Native in the Chilean Andes, but loves the mild climate of Ireland, where it survives the winters without any protection. Planted not only in arboreta (Fota and Blarney), but also in parks, gardens.

Photo was made in the Fota Arboretum, in shutter priority exposure mode with flash on. Very slight PP only (level adjustment). Title was taken from an album/songtitle from the American metal band Deicide.

Thanks for reading the above and saying a prayer, asking God a tragedy like this might not happen again, with anyone.

Hello Laszlo,
A touching tribute to the victims of the fatal accident. The families of those who lost their lives as well as those injured will be in my prayers.
By the way, a top quality photo!
