Caledonian Pine Forest

04/04/2015
Scotland's largest remaining area of Caledonian forest is at Abernethy in Cairngorms National Park. I noticed the fallen branch of this ancient pine tree on the forest edge and thought it would make a good foreground, leading the eye into the main subject. Returning just before sunset, I was rewarded by beautiful light and a dark sky beyond. I had only a few minutes to set up, compose and make the image before the light was gone.
