The Dark Hedges, Co. Antrim

The Dark Hedges, Co. Antrim
This imposing view is located near the town of Armoy in Antrim. Known as the 'Dark Hedges', these beech trees were planted in 1750 and have over time grown into this beautiful, surreal tunnel. Over time, various trees in the row have died and fallen, and recently several were removed as they were in danger of collapse. A local trust has been set up to replant the missing trees, so that this remarkable place will continue to exist in its current form. Shot with a long lens, the natural perspective compression serves to amplify the dark and brooding nature of the tunnel.
