Stuvenborn Fields Trees Winter

Moist stalks

Winter day near Stuvenborn, fields and hedgerows in the north. On the Geest and in the eastern hill country, hedgerows were mostly created 200 years ago to demarcate agricultural plots. Although they are narrow, linear landscape elements, they take up around 1 per cent of the land area and thus characterise the image of a landscape rich in woodland with a diverse structure - which is also important for tourism in Schleswig-Holstein, which has few forests.

  1. A splendid, layered view captured across this land! An interesting term that I have learned as well. It explains some of these same types of photos I have seen with these planned trees, planted specifically for demarcation. Don’t see many knicks around here.
