The Tour Marm said...

This is rather doleful.

My thoughts run to those who initially installed these steps. Where does this path take one?

jams o donnell said...

Thanks all I took it at the same time as last week's. It leads up through a wood to some rare black poplar trees

L.L. Barkat said...

Wow. Oh, I really like that. Would make a great book cover!

xander101 said...

Wow, thats a really cool pic, but also a bit spooky so get extra points!

Misslionheart said...

Now, this reminds me of a place we lived in Yorkshire. It had a walled garden which had been untouched for many years....

I love it. Happy memories are flooding back. The project of restoring it was a great task, but after 18 months, we did it!

RUTH said...

It's beautiful too. Haunting was my first thought. Have a great WW. :)

I thought this reminded me of last week's post and I even had to check the date to make sure! Very nice but a little creepy at the same time.

I'll try again - I'd love to be heading through that scene this very minute, but more so in the autumn when the leaves are crackly underfoot.

Eva said...

Wow, that is an awesome photo.

Crystal said...

Don't know what it is about steps and stairways but I love photographing them too. Great shot.

Thanks for stopping by!

lissa said...

Very nice, like a painting.

Chris said...

Infra-red, or 100 years old? ;-)

MomOf3 said...

Very majestic looking! Happy WW!!

jams o donnell said...

Thanks all. Actually no infra red at all Chris. Just Blak and White, sepia tone and a little play with teh contrast setting

I Was Born2Cree8 said...

That's really beautiful, Jams. Thanks for showing it to us.

Happy WW.

Reba said...

ARF, bark bark.

I'd love to go for a walk there, it looks beautiful.

Happy Woofless Wednesday. I'm all out of doggy cookies to serve you, but please come by anyway.

Irishcoda said...

That is a beautiful picture!!! Sometimes B&W or sepia tone nature pictures can be even more effective than color and this is one of those!

I Was Born2Cree8 said...

Hi Jams. Thanks for visiting my blog and giving me your opinion on that photo. I cropped it as you suggested... and another way too. Drop on by if you have a moment and see how you like it now.
