16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The King's road Autumn

The Dark Hedges is very famous location in Northern Ireland known from Game of Thrones tv show and visited by thousands of people every year. In real live its just a country road with trees planted both sides, with a lot of the broken by recent storms. With right equipment like a proper zoom lens you can achieve great results there. Sunrise was beautiful, but I had to wait about 30 more minutes before sun light reach the Hedges. I got everything what I was hoping for. The leaves were in all possible colors and loads of them on the trees and around the road also. There was a bit of mist too. I decided to go for vertical shot this time as I wanted to include as much branches and leaves as possible.
