Light and Shade

Glen Kinglass, Argyll, Scotland

The emptiness of the landscape was punctuated by this lone Caledonian Pine, a remnant of great forests that used to cover much of the land. In this image, I took a traditional approach, capturing the tree highlighted against the darker shadow of a cloud on the hillside. This location is a superb amphitheatre of mountains and the rich autumn colours helped maximise the intensity of the scene.
