Beech and Birch

A photograph of a copper Beech hedge which has been allowed to grow over the top of its usual height line, and some wispy Birch trees beyond.

It was another of the all-too-present grey days but there was a bit of light behind me which helped highlight the colours in the Beech and Birch.

    1. Beech hedges provide such wonderful colour during the colder seasons as do the few copper coloured leaves from the Beech trees. You’re right, they do give a feeling of warmth 🙂


  1. Two very photogentic trees, and, both favorites of mine. We must not have that kind of beech, I don’t recognize the color.
    This is a pretty shot.


    1. Thank you TBM. It’s one of the aspects of the shot which drew me to it – the unkempt new growth of the Beech and the wispy growth of the Birches. I really like the informality. I’m sure the owner of the hedge will have it spick and span before long though!
