We call this dirt road lined with big old trees a "Allee". When I looked up this word in a dictionary, it gave me the word "avenue" as a translation. I'm not quite sure whether this is the proper word, but I will use it here - and thinking of the Avenue of Giants here in Northern California it seems to be pretty fitting (with the little difference that the "giants" is a paved road...).
Unfortunately we don't have many roads like this left in Germany. There are a few ones that are paved, but more often than not the trees are felled so that the roads can be widened and people can drive faster in their cars. Yuck!!
However, there are a few left, and most of them are in the Eastern part of the country, and I just hope and pray that they can just remain this way. It is so incredible beautiful to see these roads leading to the horizon lined by those old old trees. It reminds me a lot of my childhood and somhow carefree days.
Then I started to play... Pixel Dust Photo Art has some amazing free textures that I love to use in my photos. I used two of her textures - "fanciful" and "dear John letter" textures - in this photo, played with levels and saturation and got this:
It looks way more like autumn, doesn't it?
I am linking this to Photo ART Friday - that's why Made in Germany is on my blog already on Sunday.
