Beautiful picture Ian. The tree looks like a cactus, you often see in a western movie. Greetings Berend

Greetings Berend,

The object that you thought might be a cactus was a tombstone shaped as an angel with raised wings, but the head of the angel has broken off and much of both wings has been broken as well. I understand that this damage was the result of a violent cyclonic storm that hurled trees and branches around smashing even tombstones.

Everything is perishable!
