The Earth Day: Dying in the sun
Due to wrong forest management, climate change and air pollution those beautiful forests in Beskidy (especially in their western ranges: Beskid Śląski and Beskid Żywiecki), which I showed on some of my former photos, are dying. 

The problem is that natural beech and fir forests were cut down in 19th century and replaced with spruce monocultures due to the fact that spruce wood had features desired by humans.

The southern limit of spruce range goes though Poland - this tree needs rather cold and moist climate. 
Now, when average year temperature rises, there are often droughts in summer and very strong winds the trees become damaged or weak.
On the other hand the warm climate is more comfortable for some pests like insects and parasitic fungi. These pests kill the trees. 
Plus coniferous forests are much more vulnerable for air pollution, cause they do not exchange their leaves. 

When I was in Beskid Śląski years ago I saw lot of areas of deadwood like on this photo. Last summer I talked with a man who told me that he goes to the same places in the mountains regularly and sees how the bigger and bigger area is destroyed. And I talked to Mirek here on DA and got to know that now in Beskid Śląski the dead zone is much much larger. 

Last years, when I walk trough these forests I feel deeply worried by thinking if they will survive. 
The efforts are being done to rebuilt the woods, but will they succeed, especially when the climate change is becoming faster? 

There was a Polish proverb: "The wood was here before we're born, and it will stay long after we're gone" 
(I tired to preserve the rhymes of the original)
But now I am not sure if it will stay long after. I'd rather die than see all this beauty and life lost. 

Sorry for such sad uploads, but today it the Earth Day and maybe it is a grain of sand who help "fill the cup", and make people think more about the environment. 

If someone would like to use this photo as an illustration for an article concerning protecting the environment or climate change or dying of forests - feel free to do it (it would be nice to mention me as an author of the photo, but in this case I do not insist on it, the trees are the most important here).

Born in the 80ties. Live in Cracow.

I am not a professional painter. Drawing and painting is my hobby. My other hobby is reading (especially fantasy & SF) - I write book reviews and articles on Esensja popculture on-line magazine.

My colleague has asked me, so I decided to extend my profile a little bit and (proudly) confirm that I'm an author of a short story published in the anthology settled in the Witcher universe (the anthology was a result of a contest organized on the 30th anniversary of publication of the first story about Geralt of Rivia).

I do not know if they are going to translate it into English.

I have also written several "own" short stories (I mean with the original worlds and characters), but up to day sending them to publishers a has not been successful (mostly silence, sometimes refusals).
One of this stories has appeared in the internet free Fantasy & SF magazine "Silmaris" - number 12 (1/2019)
silmaris.pl/silmaris-1-2019/
Some shorts can be also found on other Polish free magazine "Szortal"

Normally I do not prefer cityscapes, but these are too good photos to discriminate them because of my personal prejudice for the topic.
