My Photo from My World – Dark Hedges, Northern Ireland

I LOVE to take photos, especially since I received my Canon 400D (a Rebel Xti) last Christmas. I really love to take portraits, but it would just be too hard to chose just one, so instead I have chosen a favorite landscape photo.

The Dark Hedges, near(ish) Stranocum, Co Antrim, Northern Ireland.

This is one of the most unusual group of trees I have ever seen, and there are so off the beaten track you really need to be looking for them to find them! (Does that even make sense? – I mean you are very unlikely to just stumble across them, as they are off a quiet road in North Antrim well off the beaten track. I am not even sure which type of tree they are, but I plan to visit them in each season and weather condition, and record the changes.

So is there somewhere unusual and off the beaten track in your part of the world? I would love you to leave a comment and let me know.

  1. I think I’ve said this before but this is one of my all-time favorite photos you’ve taken. There’s something magical about this place.

  2. Those are unusual and remind me of one of Honey Bear’s paintings.
    Well, not closeby but we did visit an unusual place in Georgia, USA once. It was an eagle made out of rock. You could only see it from the air or the observation tower built nearby. It had been there a long time and its origin mysterious. I wonder if I could google it and find it again.

  3. I always LOVE to look at that photo – it’s so mysterious looking. I’m sure a movie has been shot there at some point, right?

    We don’t have anyplace remotely like that … we do have the Chimney Bluffs which are beautiful, but nothing as unusual as your Dark Hedges.

  4. I do love that photograph and we keep meaning to take a run out to them, but that’ll likely have to wait until we take over your cottage at some point:)

  6. WOW! I love streets where the trees have grown tall and then together over the top of the street. Looks like a very interesting place 🙂

  7. Hey, I came across your blog through this blog hop. I think you’re the first person I’ve come across that has a photo of nature… I really life this one! I do have areas around here with some amazing scenery ‘off road’ too, but haven’t captured it in a photo like yours.
