Tunnel of Trees
“Tunnel of Trees” – Gormanstown College, Co Meath, Ireland – Martina Fagan – Featured Photographer
Charlie’s Super Fantastic Photo Tip of the Day: Seek out frames for dramatic photographs. They can be either natural or manmade. Today’s tree tunnel is an unbelievable natural frame.
Tunnels are great subjects to photograph. Martina creates what looks like a portal to another dimension or at least a sunny day. Read below to find out where it actually takes you. The photo draws your eye right down the center to the well lit forest just beyond the natural tunnel. The lighting is perfect as with most of Martina’s images.

The college consists mainly of a modern building, built in a manner after the Festival of Britain, and is attached to the residential castle. The grounds, straddling County Meath and County Dublin, contain a river, a mature wood and a small 9-hole golf course. The main approach avenue scrolls through a wood of selected trees. There are several playing fields, in two different locations but contiguous with the college. The college and grounds are located between the Dublin – Belfast motorway and the old main Dublin – Drogheda road. The eastern face of Gormanston Castle looks to the sea, down a long straight field, known as “Cromwells Avenue”. One of the most remarkable features of the estate is the yew walk (Cloister), a foliage enclosed triangular area that dates back some hundreds of years, and leads down to the graveyard, where several of the Order, both priests and nuns, as well as some students, are buried. The old coach road from Dublin to Belfast runs alongside the eastern college boundary wall.
