The natural world. Looking pretty for 3.5b years.

The Dark Hedges

Author: Guest Writer/Sunday, February 17, 2013/Categories: Uncategorized

We all need some mystery and mythology in our lives. That is one reason why science fiction and fantasy novels and their movie adaptations remain so popular. A rural road in Ireland with the apt name, The Dark Hedges, fits both needs perfectly.

The Irish roadway of gnarled beech trees was planted over 200 years ago and included in the Game Of Thrones where a scene was shot for the epic TV show. It is a photographers dream of a location.

You can easily imagine a Leprechaun hanging out behind one of the ancient trees or hear a fiddler standing by the road playing a plaintive Irish fiddle tune.
