Wind withered tree in limestone fields on Twistleton Scar End, Yorkshire Dales, England.
The title Weathering Heights is a play on words from the famous book 'Wuthering Heights' by Emily Brontë. The novel is named after the Yorkshire manor on the moors on which the story centres (wuthering is a Yorkshire word referring to turbulent weather).
The windswept tree is a common site around these parts due to their unsheltered location and exposure to the often harsh environment so common on these moors, particularly in winter! The limestone rock doesn't escape either, as you can clearly see the effects of the chemical process known as carbonation, resulting in the distinctive appearence of limestone known as clints and grykes. These are formed when rainwater flowing over an impermeable surface on reaching (permeable) limestone, dissolves the joints into grooves called grykes, leaving blocks or clumps of limestone in between called clints!
I'm sure there are experts out there that may dissagree with me on that, but that's about as much as I know on the subject anyway!!!
