Love this orchard I found near Sens, France. (I've been corrected, it's a grove, not an orchard!)

Post challenge,

Thanks for all the comments, votes, and faves.

A friend took me on a drive around Sens, France one morning while I was "stuck" in France due to the Iceland volcano ash cloud.

Also got these

Glad I could help my DPL2 team out this time.

I love places like this. Congrats on 4th place; that's pretty cool.

Oh, and technically, an orchard consists of food-producing trees (fruit or nuts). Maybe this is a grove.

Hmm, I think this forest looks familiar from other challenges, but it's perfect for this challenge. Great textured bark, and a nice contrast. The gradient from top to bottom is great too!

wonderful repeating lines and excellent control of exposure to emphasize the details and maintain balance between the lights of the trunks and the deep tones of the grass

Now there are a lot of wonderful images in this challenge, but this should take the blue!

Gorgeous. Coming back to bump it up. Although my one word comment does sort of say it all, I do think the composition is extra special. Lovely image. One of my highest scoring in this challenge.

Very nice! I love the lines and the contrast between the lower third (ground and trunks), middle third (trunks), and upper third (trunks and leaves against sky).
