A lovely photograph - very well done!

I like the row of trees, row of moss covered rocks , the stream and then the fence - all in diverging lines - draws you right into the picture.

I realized on the enlargement that the row of rocks must have perhaps been a fence at one time. Was it misty or frosty in the pasture? The beech trees are beautiful - I am not sure I knew what a beech looked like until now!

Greetings from Wisconsin, USA

Yes this used to be a dry stone wall and it was a very frosty morning.

HA - letters after my name, I have had it a long time but never used it. I caught Jethro but he hasn't worked it out yet.

Interesting you stopped at this photo, its one of my favourites.

Off the beaten track there those trees. The carpet of leaves adds sparkle to the shot. It takes little imagination to hear that stream tinkling away and the familiar chirping up there on the boughs..Nice!

Wow this is an old one Jim

It still remains one of my favourites. It isn't really off the beaten track, we go there regularly for the peace and tranquility (and the birdwatching)
