Sunrise at The Dark Hedges, Ballymoney, County Antrim, Northern Ireland - This iconic avenue of ancient beech trees was planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion. Whilst some branches have recently been lost due to disease, the trees still remain a wonderful sight. They are one of the most photographed landscape locations in Northern Ireland. I shot this fully zoomed in using my Canon 70-200 F4 to compress the scene. Recently this has become a filming location the series Game of Thrones, representing the King's Road.
