Good morning all.
Many thanks to all who voted and left comments on my last upload. A special thanks to Graham (Digital_boi) and Netta (Netta1234) for their much valued UAs

This is an image of the dark hedges near to where I live. This road is photographed as much as the nearby Giants Causeway.

Have a wonderful day
Jim

Ever since these hedges were included in Countryfile Calendar, I've wanted to photograph them.
This is quite a light airy image but there must be so many different moods to capture this in throughout the year.
Well composed Jim.

The focal length of 70mm. has helped the interlacing branches to seem even more so, Jim, and the effect is obviously that more apparent with the bare branches in winter.
