Lime Tree Avenue is situated in Clumber Park which is a National Trust site near Worksop. The Avenue is well known for the row of lime trees that stretch for about a mile. This picture was taken at 0700 around sunrise with a heavy mist all around and just beginning to burn off as the sun gets stronger. The site is 5 miles from my home.

Very nice effect of depth. It seems that it goes to infinity ! The fog brings some mystic atmosphere. Well done !

Really misterious effect! Nice and dramatic! You got a superb perspective thanks to the trees disposition. Regards.
carper (96) 2005-02-02 12:08
Very nice one Colin,
Fantastic atmosphere, good composition, very nice point of view, I like the light, the fog and the fantastic depth, very good job I like it very much
faletiz (10759) 2005-02-02 12:08
I like this Photo, beautiful light and shadows, the much beautiful profile of the trees and the light fog. Thankyou!
Guenther (10915) 2005-02-02 12:10
Wonderful, a great effect, what a light!!
Cool-ice (5289) 2005-02-02 12:18
Great image, Colin !
The mist gives an unreal aspect to this very graphical scene and the light is incredibly beautiful.
It's personal, but it would have been still stronger with a character in the left.
But it is already exceptional, congratulations !
fredon (5052) 2005-02-02 12:19
Great perspective and atmosphere. I particulary like the way the trees in distance are vanishing because of the mist. Excellent framing!
hugolef (4909) 2005-02-02 12:22
i've seen this pic (or another wich looks similar), and i think it isn't original ... but your shot is very good, and i'm happy to see it again !
Good frame, good DOF, nice tones, great work in fact !
Thanks for sharing, regards.
RGatward (20062) 2005-02-02 12:22
Just a great shot, excellent use made of the repeating trees, and the mist gives a lovely light. Perfect framing.
sines (0) 2005-02-02 12:23
Cela me rappel lorsque l'on regarde quelque chose dans deux mirroirs qui se font face, une impression d'infini donné par la répétition.
Pour ma part, j'aurais peut-êtré légèrement coupé la partie droite de la photo (3 ou 4 cm)
Vicky (1442) 2005-02-02 12:29
Wow. Great atmospheric shot! I like the way the trunk nearest to us is black and then the rest become lighter as they get further away. Scary fog effect at the end there, as if something is hiding in it waiting to jump out. Don't think I would have lingered too long if I had been there! Thanks for staying so we can share it with you.....
Maru (0) 2005-02-02 12:29
Impressive shot, strange effect in the background with the mist.. it's very graphic, with the silhouette of the trees almost melting and desapearing..
Great mood and composition
Cath (360) 2005-02-02 12:36
Superbe cette brume! on dirait que l'allée d'arbres est reproduite à l'infini. Cette lumière entre les arbres donne une atmosphère étrange, féérique.Amicalement,
antti (0) 2005-02-02 12:36
Dreamlike shot you have made. Like many shots covered over each other. Marvellous light coming there, so soft and pleasent atmosphere.
You have made master work, Colin.
chefcop (275) 2005-02-02 12:55
Great shot Colin, I am from Nottingham originally and have never seen Clumber Park looking so beautiful. Well done.
keribar (43841) 2005-02-02 13:11
What a nice effect,almost like a painting.
You really grabbed the delicate atmosphere
in the best of ways. TYhis picture will go directly to my favorites.

Hello,Colin. I love this wonderful image. The composition is excelent and the magical atmosphere is amazing. Ligth is really wonderful, full of mystery and beauty.
dkeus31 (27735) 2005-02-02 15:30
Good light, nice framing and atmosphere well catched.
jbweasle (9373) 2005-02-02 15:33
Colin, you really have posted something special tonight. A beautiful layered effect and mysterious with the fog and the dark leaves at the top. Well done too for being out and about at 7am!
Philappy (157) 2005-02-02 17:00
Beau comme une peinture, une lumière irréelle, une composition parfaite. Great shot !!
avigur_11 (22077) 2005-02-02 17:23
Amazing set of fading colors and magic light, nice repetition and a stunning result. The kind of photo that we all dream about. Great job, Colin.
kabe (2011) 2005-02-02 17:34
Very nice shot.
Tue (27696) 2005-02-02 18:14
Great perspective! The light and shadows from the trees are very good. Well seen!
xhanuman (558) 2005-02-03 1:12
This is the most compelling photograph I've seen today on TE. It presents a definite mood, which is possibly one of the most elusive & unseen qualities of photography. It would be great to see it as 1600 Neopan rendition as well... I'm sure you can imagine that! Nice website as well... cheers!
danielswalsh (13599) 2005-02-03 2:15
Awesome shot Colin,
I expect to see the "Headless Horseman" from "Sleepy Hollow" come galloping out of the fog... you really captured the mood!
naxius (16685) 2005-02-03 3:48
Magnific composition Colin. I like the mist atmosphere.
The light is really good.
jp80 (8443) 2005-02-03 4:09
Wonderful foggy atmosphere here Colin, the effect is very nice. The light over there, the myst, the perspectives made by those trees... I like this one. Thanks for sharing !
delaufer (260) 2005-02-03 5:30
This is a magnificent photo with a superb collection of elements that all work together perfectly. Thanks for sharing.
maphoto (8082) 2005-02-05 12:38
Went back into your album Colin, this one is realy great, wonderful point of view and framing ,nice mood and light, very well seen.
Janice (4403) 2005-02-05 23:00
Beautiful capture here Colin. I love seeing the mist shine through the trees. Added to my favourites - so thank you for sharing.
Lime trees - do they fruit? They look much bigger than what our lime/lemon trees get to.
cloverstar (0) 2005-02-07 10:05
This is a stunning view. What I enjoy the most is the fog and lighting conditions. Very good composition with great element of line, and diagonal positioning of the trees.Well done. A pure pleasure to look at, and well worth the early morning trip on your part.
rj2747 (526) 2005-02-08 13:12
It is no wonder that this shot is rated so highly, it really is most atmospheric. It might take a little patience to find that ideal light in England, but here you have shown how rewarding it can be, lending the line of trees a timeless air.
quino (693) 2005-02-09 7:16
Absolutely amazing. The best of the pic is the gradetion of the colour of the trees in the distance. Wonderful!
shangri-la (353) 2005-02-09 14:58
en otant 3-4 cm au bas de l'image... celle-ci serait parfaite à mon goût!
je ne sais pas si c'est cette brume cotonneuse qui me fait croire que cette photo est en réalité une peinture?! mais y'a un truc!
LCannon (2796) 2005-03-26 23:56
This is a stunning photo Colin, I love the misty mood you've created here. The bumpy trunks of the trees are nice, as are the horizontal lines of the trees shadows. I love the color of the leaves near the middle too. Very nice photo.
capthaddock (28790) 2005-03-27 18:21
Hi Colin - you have a very impressive gallery, I'll start with this one. The geometry and misty mood make it an exceptionally attractive image.
gazo (116) 2005-04-03 23:50
archanabhimasen (270) 2005-04-04 0:05
Wonderfully captured gradation of the trees and the tones!!!
aros (0) 2005-04-04 0:07
Every once in a while you are privileged to be in the right place at the right time. If you're even luckier you'll have your camera with you. In this case, all these circumstances have co-incided, and you haven't wasted the opportunity... the image is very "other-worldly" and exudes mood and atmosphere. Well done!
ravish (140) 2005-04-04 4:55
SUPERB WORK WITH LIGHT ADJUSTMENT.THE TREES DO SEEM TO COMPLETELY DISAPPREAR IN THE MIST BUT GRADUALLY.THE ONLY THING I WANT TO KNOW IS THAT WHETHER THE DOT MARKS WHICH I SEE ON THE SECOND TREE FROM THE RIGHT ARE DUE TO SHARPENING AND THE DARK LINE MADE ON IT IS NATURAL?
Steft (5975) 2005-04-05 6:29
Wow, I don't know what to say. This is just perfect and very beautiful. One of my favourites. Really splendid work!
gren4 (603) 2005-04-09 2:06
perfect composition.the tees fading neatly into the small triangle of off white and I like the delicate capture of the leaves in sharp focus at the top.I really must get out more in my own country.
paolino (1024) 2005-05-25 2:59
very good idea and very well implemented. Just on question: what is that black strip on the trunk of the second ( and partialy on the 3th) tree?
morganommer (765) 2005-06-27 12:10
That's a beautifull shot.
it almost looks like the light is artificial ( ( from a car or something)
have you ever tried Fuji Astia film ?
Didi (57494) 2005-07-04 4:07
C'est une composition magnifique où j'apprécie cette variation de contraste additionnée à la brume.
Je note une très bonne maîtrise de l'exposition et un cadrage parfait.
It is a splendid composition where I appreciate this variation of contrast added with the fog. I note a very good control of the exposure and a perfect framing.
langaloo (489) 2005-07-10 9:05
Congratulations! This picture is just stunningly beautifull.
Sorry for the dumb comment, I should have written : No Comment, but it is not polite to do so, and it is silly to tell you why I love this picture.
Vagabond (5848) 2005-07-12 11:35
Fantastic and very ARTISTIC work. A real winner, congratulations ..
alekpet (4663) 2005-07-18 11:33
Very nice place you live in, Colin.
Great crop, and mist certainly adds to the depth of the picture.

Genial...una composición para nunca olvidar.
jstewart (1150) 2005-09-25 22:09
Have just come across this wonderful photo. A small suggestion: use levels in PS to darken it slightly. It could be my monitor, tho I doubt it, but I find it a bit bleached out in the centre.
sergio1 (12152) 2005-09-26 5:15
Perfecta toma y su efecto de niebla.
ton (82) 2005-09-26 6:38
shooting fogs could be a little tricky sometimes but you captured it great. Nice DOF and good contrast. and nice exposure the shadows of the trees are still showing. nice work Colin!

mlopes (494) 2005-11-05 9:16
What to say after 130 points ahahah i think i will not say anything new. for me it's the athmosphere that makes this photo.
farshid (365) 2005-11-16 6:56
i just can say congratulations.
jafadabret (56501) 2005-11-26 5:07
Une photo superbe. Tout a été dit mais on ne se lasse pas de la regarder. La composition est simple mais efficace pour arriver à une atmosphère singulière grâce à la brume qui estompe petit à petit les arbres à mesure qu'ils s'éloignent de l'observateur.
riclopes (35577) 2005-12-03 3:51
Good Morning Colin,
This is a SUPERB shot! I love misty photos and this one is very well captured with a great composition. The repetition of these trees ( I count 10) along the avenue with all the resulted layers is fantastic! Very good lighting and contrasts. Congratulations!
I'm happy to see this one on the frontpage of TE.
tmx (1324) 2006-03-13 6:57

Hi Colin. I found this one by chance and am glad I did. Nice composition, excellent perspective. I love the repetition and how colors fade away while the trees are deeper in the picture. The overall atmosphere is great. Regards, Yvonne

You've captured the effect of the mist beautifully!Something I've always struggled with. Magical & Mystical!
banyanman (7789) 2007-09-01 3:02
This one popped up in your randoms, Colin. I hadn't seen it before, but so glad it did because what an amazing shot! The way in which the tree trunks change from solid black to a sort of transparent white, layer by layer through the image, and then disappear in the mist is incredible. Superbly composed and exposed, with a magical atmosphere. This must be one of your best posts to TE. Cheers . . . David
Jonas_Schmitt (3074) 2007-09-11 4:48

This must be a place to go back to again and again for shots in different light and mood.
Lovely framing and well controlled exposure.
I wonder if it would look with slightly warmer tones.
SlavicaN (568) 2007-09-17 6:09

marknunnerley (2780) 2008-02-28 5:06
What an amazing shot Colin. I don't know if you used a grad filter but the depth of this scene is excellent. From the light filtering through the lime trees and the mist hsnging in the air and the subtle tones. Beautiful.
Yffic (6106) 2008-03-11 2:51
I would not be very original in saying that your shot is a pure gem...
The compo, the colors, the ambiance... everything is impressive.

Very ominous walkway. What is waiting behind the next tree? Great dark shadow on the first tree instead of acutal color. I'm curious about the strips on trees #2 & 3. Why are they there? Thanks for sharing your wonderful shot.

takisleontidis (85) 2009-10-12 3:26
Great shot Colin! I like too much the way the line of the lime trees drives the eye far away and the mood the mist creates. More detail in the leaves of the tree would be welcome also. Have a nice week!
