'Glen Etive Trees'

The deer enclosure in Glen Etive has some superb trees growing in it, but it needed sublime conditions like this particular day to lift it beyond the ordinary.

I had made a trial exposure of the same composition a couple of days before knowing that either late catching light or something else altogether different would be needed.

I got a chance unusually quickly when it finally started snowing a couple of days later.

I particularly like the way there is just the slightest hint of colour in the tree in such a monochromatic landscape.

Dave Tolcher captured a picture of me on his compact camera whilst I was making this image and it will forever stick in my mind. The deer enclosure was a fairyland that day.

Technical details, Linhof Technikardan, 240mm lens, Provia 100, no filtration. Rear tilt used to control perspective.
