This beautiful avenue of beech trees was planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century. It was intended as a compelling landscape feature to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion, Gracehill House. Two centuries later, the trees remain a magnificent sight and have become one of the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland.

Congratulations on GEA - well deserved for a beautiful image
of The Dark Hedges. Still to get there myself - first saw it in Countryfile Calendar.
You've captured it so beautifully here with wonderful light.
Wonder how many visits before achieving this image?

Beautiful take the mist really makes the photo. I am originally from N. Ireland and when I returned to visit my family earlier this year I took a visit to this very spot. My take is certainly nowhere as good as this, the trees where bare in March.

Stunning image of this much photographed scene. You have managed to put your own slant on it with the beautiful warm tones and mist. Well captured.
