"I never saw a discontented tree" - John Muir.
The first in a short travel series, Photos of Shawhead. Shawhead is a (very) small village in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. Great wee place, always nice to go for a walk. I have relatives there, and spent this weekend relaxing before starting my summer placement (i.e. spending every day in a suit) - so thought I'd photograph some of the more unusual or interesting features of the area.
First up is this rather simple scene - nothing more to it than a tree on a hill, but the colours seemed so simple and clean. Coming from a city (Glasgow) I don't get much chance to see anything like this. The little tree at the side seemed to add that little extra touch of interest. I left plenty of sky in as that is the one thing I think of with the countryside - clear skies with no buildings.
