The Pine Line

Mendip Hills, Somerset

Rows of trees are often used to mark field boundaries on the Mendip Hills. Most rows consist of Beech trees, which have a certain elegant shape. This row, however, is made up of pine trees which have an entirely different character. Their tall, thin silhouettes are unmistakable. The trees are besides a busy road between Burrington Combe and Wells so many people drive past them every day. I have passed them thousands of times on my travels and I've often wondered how best to capture them in a photo. I decided that a misty morning would suit them best.
