West Lomond Harvest
Kinross, Fife, Scotland
Being the highest hill in Fife, West Lomond's volcanic dolerite cone can be seen from miles around. Together with it's sister peak of East Lomond, they form a distinctive backdrop to many Fife landscapes. The surrounding area is very fertile, with much of the land turned over to agricultural use. The trick with images of straw bales in a field, is to simplify the composition by positioning the camera to get the greatest number of bales separated from each other. Here, the restricted colour palette helps create distinct regions of interest aided by the cloud pattern which echoes that of the bales.
