Northern Ireland - The Dark Hedges

NIKON D80, 110.0 mm, f/22.0, 0.6 sec, ISO 100 AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-210mm f/4 CC-BY-NC-ND-4.0

Long before this place was "featured" on Game of Thrones, we spotted this place with the help of the images in Google Maps.

We already had an approximate plan what to see and visit in Northern Ireland when we were planning our trip when an image of the Dark Hedges popped up.

Finding the actual road is a bit tricky; it's in a rural, fairly abandoned area and even the locals might not know where it is.

Unfortunately they set up a bright, ugly, rudely intrusive fence on one side and it's very hard to find a spot where it's not too harsh on the picture. Everyone was against the fence, yet it was still put in place; I hope it will go away soon.

Don't forget to stay till sunset: you might spot the wandering grey lady ghost who is spotted here occasionally.
