When I think of this wonderful Beech avenue Graham, I try to imagine how it must have appeared hundreds of years ago. Then I wonder at the creativity of the person who had the foresight to plant these magnificent trees.
Perhaps my imagination may turn into reality if they fall victim to the chainsaw. That will be a very sad occasion.
At least, your photos bare witness to their exsistence. Thanks for posting these stunning images Graham.
Hi Jim - for some reason I can see your comments on my front page but not under the picture - but hey! - yuh the attitude of people who planted parks for country houses, avenues etc knowing they'd never see them at their best is something we've lost, I think. It's ironic in a way that the light flooding in from the right in this image and illuminating the foliage is the result of a missing tree - but different circumstances produces different responses I guess - we can only photograph what's there. thanks, as always, for your thoughtful comments. Graham
Thanks Graham. I am certain that there is a problem with Panoramio. I am now seeing repeat mail that was posted weeks ago. I am responding to you in the normal way via the comments box below your photo. I wonder now if this comment will appear where it should.
Thanks for your reponse.
hi Jim - I think the reappearence of old mail relates to the spam attack of 25/26 May - as the spam message is deleted, the next most recent goed to the top of the pile, if you see what i mean. Graham
Hi Graham very nice Road¡¡¡¡ Best Regards from Catalonia. Josep Àngel
What a nice road, Graham !!! great shot Y.S.* to this shot and your gallery.
Best regards!!, Víctor
hi to everyone who has looked at, commented on this picture - it is easily the quickest to 100 views of any of my images (nothing compared to some of you, but that's not the point) - but I think that's a fitting tribute to these grand old trees as they approach the end of their lives. Thank-you. Graham
A stunning composition Graham! Beautiful perspective and array of green hues.

Thanks Victor and Alan - as I say above, it's a bit of a case of photographing it while one can - good photoigraphically speak to have the motivation, sad to think of the reason why it's necessary. :) :( Graham
Thank-you Andreas for all your kind comments. Regards, Graham
Really fantastic shot looks like a fairy tale!
What time was it?
Stephan - if you click on 'extra information' you'll see the shot timed at 6:17:58 - that was about three quarters of an hour after sunrise - and being on a Sunday it was just about safe to set the tripod up in the middle of the road. I hadn't meant to wake up so early, but it was such a nice morning i decided to go out anyway - glad I did ;-) Graham
Dear Graham, Nice to meet you!
Thank you so much for your kind information on it.So I will try it.
Greetings,Stephan from Seoul South Korea
Tank you for your comments Alan, greetings Terry (South Africa).
Thanks for the link, Terry - nice pic - though I never got to play golf in SA either. ;-) Graham
Fantastic road! Congratulation! Greetings form Sicily!
Thanks Luigi - I've enjoyed browsing your gallery too - I always envy the way you can drive so easily from country to country in mainland Europe - once you've got off your own island, I suppose. :) Graham
Very nice composition and stunning light. It's an beautiful shot Graham. Congratulations and Y.S.
