Beech Trees in Autumn

Beech trees fagus sylvatica are one of the finest trees to find in an Irish woodland.

This non-native species was introduced at some point in history, many centuries ago at least, and has become so widespread that it would appear to be a native Irish tree.

Growing very tall, beech trees often provide shelter for the forest floor below and, as seen in the image above, it often holds on to its leaves through autumn and winter giving a lovely red/brown to the woodland landscape above ground level.

Here, on a calm and misty day the colours from the elegant beech tree make the journey into the countryside worthwhile.

Join me, Panoramic Ireland, on a photography workshop in Ireland to photograph woodland scenes or street scenes when you next visit Dublin, Belfast, Cork or Galway.
