Thank you, Kitty. I put this in my top 40 of all-time favorites. I photographed it on a recent photo tour I led to Ireland.

Note from the Editor: Here are more details on this amazing image - from Jim Z's photo blog:

"This stunning row of trees forms an eerie tunnel-like structure over a country road north of Belfast. It's locally called Dark Hedges, and I used a 200mm telephoto lens to compress the myriad branches lit by a setting sun. I used f/32 because it was important to show the entire image, from front to back, tack sharp.
"A tripod was required because it allowed me the ability to shoot with a small lens aperture, and I used the self-timer to trip the shutter. I also locked up the mirror to make sure the camera was as vibration-free as possible. This is certainly one of the most amazing roads I've ever seen." #8665827

Thank you, Carol. It was a great find. However, it was annoying when cars wanted to use the road because in order to shoot this, I and my photo tour group had to stand right in the middle of the road.
