These trees are earmarked to be thinned out as some have now been declared dangerous so I took a shot of them early to late evening as the sun was going down. I thought I had better before they start to chop some away. I think they are very interesting in the way that nature has intertwined them. Spookey even!.....

Lovely shot with nice light. You deserve as much credit for seeing the potential in this scene and as much again for taking it well...

Hi there,
Thank you all very much for your kind remarks. I really appreciate itand am glad you like the shot.

Bauer... I don`t understand your language so don`t know what you said but I have the feeling you are saying complimentary things.
Thanks.

Hi anjas,
POI?
What is this supposed to mean? Is it point of interest?
Regards,
Ian

Thanks guys for your kind words.

`Starstriders` I might just do as you would like to do and spend a bit of time there exploring the various possibilities of different shots from various angles. Definitely food for thought.
Thanks for the idea.

Fab shot, great lighting. For some reason they remind me of the talking trees in lord of the rings.. :o)

Great shot. I can see why they have to cut them but it is a shame. A high truck would never make it.

I agree with the 'talking trees' comment - I thought they had a magical (mystical) feel about them. Very nice!

Hi there all,
Just so as there is no misunderstanding. These trees are not all being hewn down. Only the ones that are considered to be dangerous are to be chopped. Remember they are over 200 years old and are on a road that is used daily by all walks of life.
As a point of interest when couples in this area would marry they would come down this road in a horse and carriage. If only I could capture that to add perspective to the scene.
Chris,you are right on they are out through Stranocum.
