Dark hedges

this morning was very wet – but an opportunity to visit the dark hedges to take a few photographs in between the showers. The rain has 2 advantages – keeping away the tourists and creating puddles for reflection. Even so we still had to dodge about half a dozen people with their cameras and a number of cars. Apparently the dark hedges have become the most photographed natural feature in Northern Ireland – perhaps partly because it appeared in game of thrones. They are all beech trees, were planted in the 18th century as a grand entrance to a country house and are haunted (best visited at dusk to check out that feature)
