    I love these shots - incredibly textural (is that a word?) Great lighting also, and being from a rural area in Upstate NY, very motivatiing. Will have to start looking around. Thanks!!

    There's something going on in the first one that adds a sense of mystery to it.

    Maybe it was last used by the Devon equivalent of one of A E Houseman's "Shropshire Lads", the lads who will never grow old.

    Barrie, it's the white tree and light area behind that I find very mysterious. It adds something more to the image. It's like the light to the past shining thru....
    There's almost a glow the captures the eye.
