D'em Bones

By hwatt  
The iconic skeletal tree that stands like a lone sentinel against the elemental extremes of Rannoch moor looked simply amazing surrounded by the grass covered peat hags resplendent in their autumn gown of burnt orange. The luminosity of the scene was intensified by light drizzle and a polariser which cut through the surface glare givng the colours extraordinary depth.

Pentax 67II, 55-100 zoom, polariser, 0.6ND grad, f/22 at 4 sec's, Velvia.

Your images never cease to impress Ian, the colours are always wonderful without super saturation, just splendid.

All the very best and belated congrats on the HC,
