Love the grey tones in this. Great picture.
Chris: Thank you Astrid. This was taken last winter on a journey to Glastonbury

Do you mean hedges?
I like the copse on the hill in the background
Chris: In theoretical physics, boundary conformal field theory (BCFT) is a conformal field theory defined on a spacetime with a boundary (or boundaries). Different kinds of boundary conditions for the fields may be imposed on the fundamental fields; for example, Neumann boundary condition or Dirichlet boundary condition is acceptable for free bosonic fields. BCFT was developed by John Cardy.

In the context of string theory, physicists are often interested in two-dimensional BCFTs. The specific types of boundary conditions in a specific CFT describe different kinds of D-branes.

BCFT is also used in condensed matter physics - it can be used to study in boundary critical behavior and to solve quantum impurity models

Our field boundaries are a study in themselves, be they hedges, walls or whatever. And such shapes and patterns they can make
Chris: Quite so Lisl: thank you

Oh, I remember to have seen such boundaries in February during my snowdrop journey - but the most hedges were cut down like the hedge in the foreground, and I asked who is responsible for this cutting down- the local authorities, the owners of the fields... - some hedges were growing wild and needed a cut.
Chris: These days farmers are paid to conserve hedgerows Philine whilst in the past they were paid to rip them out..
Clear the trees and it is a six!
Chris: You make this sound like cricket!

Ah winter! Mmmm.. my favourite season after autumn., especially on days such as this. Our hedgerows define this as being dear old England.

Oh.. I've seen a tree on Orkney!
Chris: Mein Gott - a TREE!!

Wonderful agriscape, Chris.
Chris: Muchos gracias amigo
Well you started it by mentioning boundaries
Chris: Hedges usually denote boundaries, as do walls, roads etc etc

Made me think of the phrase "beating the bounds" when parish worthies would show youngsters the outer limits and give them a good thrashing to make sure they remembered.

Pleasing composition in B&W with the sunlit mist highlighting the trees.
Chris: Taken on the spur of the moment as I drove down to Glastonbury Mike
This is a great picture Tiff, well supported in greyscale. I like your reply to Herr Trim, that told him!
Chris: You may have heard the phrase Clever Dick before Chad..
I know you have very thought-out and applied hedgerows in your country but ours are simple and similar to the one shown above. They hold more life per inch than can be imagined. I am a huge fan and would love to plant hundreds more. Excellent material for this excellent photo.
Chris: Thank you Mary: I am a fan too
What a calming image Chris in black and white..
Chris: That is very kind of you Ronky
This would do well in a competition IMHO.Chris, the use of B.& W.is splendid. (I'm in camera club mode ready for tonight's meeting)
Chris: Aha - I see you are Brian! Well I hope you confound the judges with some of your pictures.

It is great to see fields defined by their boundaries and not have huge open spaces with no habitat variety.

A lovely picture Chris
Chris: Thank you Anne, it was taken twixt Wells & Glastonbury

Magical, Chris.
Chris: Winter light Pauline: thank you
i really like this image of the field with the hedge around it Chris...

i read your reply to Richard... and decided not to question which boundariessmile
Chris: Hahaha - thank you Peter!
Lovely shot, Chris - ideal for B&W
Chris: In colour it just didn't work Tom
Play misty for me... smile
Chris: Quite so Elizabeth..
