Wednesday Window: at the end of the road

I took this photo while visiting a friend in Normandy, not very far from Bénerville, where I go on holiday.
I like the green in it.

At the end of the road
What’s at the end of the road?

  1. Great shot – it leads you into the photo.

    Its the sought of lane you want to walk along with friends – smelling the fresh air and listening to the birds.

  2. I don’t know what is at the end of that road, but I am hoping that it is Normandy cidre! Camembert? A creperie? 🙂

    I just love this picture! Can I get a print of it? I want to put it a wall here at the house.

  3. That is a fantastic place and a great photo of it! I love allees formed by trees like that. I saw a wonderful one on the grounds at Versailles!

  4. Where the trees bow their heads and meet above – my Mother used to say

    ‘God’s Church’.

    Thank you for being you.

  5. We’re lucky to have lots of similar country in southern England, and these hidden paths and roads have such an air of mystery. Do you know the poem by Kipling:

    They shut the road through the woods
    Seventy years ago.
    Weather and rain have undone it again,
    And now you would never know
    There was once a road through
    the woods
    Before they planted the trees.
    It is underneath the heath, and the thin
    anemones.
    Only the keeper sees
    That where the ring-dove broods,
    And the badgers roll at ease,
    There was once a road through the
    woods.

    Yet, if you enter the woods
    Of a summer evening late,
    When the night-air cools on the
    trout-ringed pools,
    Where the otter whistles his mate,
    (They fear not men in the woods,
    Because they see so few),
    You will hear the beat of a horse’s feet,
    And the swish of a skirt in the dew,
    Steadily cantering through,
    The misty solitudes,
    As though they perfectly knew
    The old lost road through the woods…

    But there is no road through the woods.
