Cathedral of trees.

Cathedral of trees.
A re-post of the original November 7, 2014 up-load. - I thought this well worth re-looking at, as it was always one of my favourites on here. It also demonstrates to some tune, the tunnel that we are all going through with the Pandemic and to a lesser degree Ipernity. Hopefully, all will be restored to normal soon. In the meantime - just sit back, relax and enjoy!

~This very pleasant drive is actually called Station Road looking towards the Fox & Hounds Inn near the village of Lydford in Devon. Walking or indeed driving along here is almost awe-inspiring in this dappled light. I tried a few evenings to get this kind of lighting just right and I am afraid I never got that quite perfect. The mind boggles what it must be like with heavy snow, hoar-frost or that wonderful Autumnal gold. Enjoy! ~

Wishing you all a Happy New and safe Year

Thanks Peter, Daniela and Jaap for your precious comments. Yes, a fairy tale feeling was indeed to be felt as I walked through along this road with this lighting. Could have had an altogether different feel at midnight Daniela.

Steve, Clare, Chris, Tomas, Doris, Margrit and Pom, sincere apologies for not seeing your many comments until now. I am never sure why some photos get missed like this. I think I am getting better now at answering comments more promptly. Anyway, I am very happy that you all like this cathedral avenue.

A little scary, I must agree, and I remember driving through it in the dead of night when it was really weird.

Hi Roger, very happy that you liked this one. Lots of the country is experiencing the typical Winter chaos we always experience. Some parts have had heavy floods and others heavy snows. We up here in Gr Manchester have had neither -so far but snow forecast for tonight.

All the Best for the New Year to you and yours too. Herb

Thanks for re-posting it and for your excellent notes. Take care.
