Pride of Place

By hwatt  
Loch Maree, Torridon, Scotland

I have photographed these two gorgeous trees quite often and always like them best when photographed with a long lens to compress perspective between the mountain, mighty Slioch and the blazing golden birch tree with its illuminated Scots Pine neighbour. This is probably one of the best shots I have of the pair and I particularly enjoy the blue cast falling down the mountain slope courtesy of a clearing sky when juxtaposed with the golden birch foliage.

Everything comes to him who waits.

Absolutely beautiful - and no mean feat with Velvia, exposurewise.

Lovely image, Velvia used to be my favourite film many years ago, exposure is excellent, very little leeway compared to the dynamic range of digital.
