The real tree of Scotland , the Scots Pine in its natural habitat (Cairngorms) what could be finer !
I like this image a lot Rod !! Excellent capture !!
This is an incredibly beautiful yet in some ways a rather haunting image Rod. The monochrome processing adding to that feeling.
That's how I would see it Laddie, very nicely composed and processed, good presentation suits mono very well, this is your indium stick with it Rod, regards Leon.
Trail Of The Lonesome Pine" by LAUREL & HARDY'' indeed Rod well suited to the mono production good oen
Aye Graham there was actually two trees in the original fotae but the other wan wisnae behaving so i chopped it doon lol
this image is far better than you even think, Rod..............great composition, love the right hand bottom corner rock, the thirds placing of the element of the tree, the grain in the sky (intentional or not!!) the brutal contrast of the tree, and the harsh shadow on the windswept grass. very stark, very Scots. the last meant as a compliment..............your environment molds your eye. phil
Cheers Phil thats quite a compliment the grain in the sky was sorta intentional as it adds so much to the image. Hopefully you get the impression of the tree battling against the elements and at the same time being at one with the very harsh environment it finds itself in.
Excellent classic capture. I remember walking the Lairig Ghru route from Braemar and going through an ancient forest of these lovely trees.
Great sky too (photographically at least)
Yup Ian that scene is not far from Braemar just past the Linn O Dee Cheers
