Kilkenny Landscape Photography : The Simple things – A line of trees.

Most of the time when I am out taking Landscape pictures, its the simple things that catch my attention, like this simple line of trees at one end of a large woodland, set in the hills above Windgap, county Kilkenny.

When trees are young like these ones they are planted very close together. later this area will be thinned out and half these trees will be cut down so that there is space for the best trees to develop and grow, the cut trees will be sold as firewood so it is not wasted.

There are so many things we just don’t notice, I think this is one thing I love most about doing about Landscape photography, it makes you look at and see things so often lost in the bigger picture of daily life.

  2. What a stunning image, Nigel. There’s just something forlorn about a line of trees so close together – they seem to be huddling next to each other.

    I love the asymmetrical symmetry of your perspective. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
