    Inside the quiet forest of Perthshire, Scotland on a crisp, cold, winter day a man walks leisurely among the mammoth Beech trees, their sturdy trunks gnarled and gripping the earths floor stretch out before him. They extend a welcoming invitation to come explore their magical wonderland.
    Angus, no stranger to these woods as he has photographed ( his friends the Beech) on many occasion. With keen aesthetic awareness, he observes the soft dusting of white powdery snow, blanketing the once vibrantly colored leaves that adorned these large now barren branches. The scene is pristine, undisturbed, only a warm foggy golden light beams in the far distance.
    I've found the perfect moment to capture this most breathtaking landscape, Angus' heart whispers and with one click of the camera's shutter a masterful work of Art is born!

    To me this image expresses your deep affinity with wood. A love that is visual, tactile and everlasting, that resides deep within your very soul. Not only are you a master landscape photographer but an artisan of woodturning that is an art form like no other. I am in awe of your talents!!

    There's a sense here of seeing just a portion of the highly symbolic World Tree, also known as Axis mundi, connecting heaven and earth and all life forms. The powdered branches stretch beyond our vision, and the roots go deeper than we can fathom. The image invites us to stand quite still on a carpet of dying leaves until we feel the sacred silence of this tree. Bravo.

    Among the tall trees of a beautiful Scottish forest a man walks
    with his camera. Ania, walks behind, wrist, back, everything working fine, and she says:
    If you don't comment on this beautiful photo, I'll tell the brown bear where Max is.
    So, here I'm, amazed by all of this beauty.
    I loved Scotland, the light there was amazing, I'm longing to go back, but, there is a but; in a nice sunny warm day.
    I hate the cold.
    Fantastic shot dude, great comp. as well.

    Not surprising at all that this image received commendation at a competition. The perspective and composition are outstanding! The twistiness comes through very well in both the near and the distant trees, and is such an element of this image. The light on the near trunk seems to make it glow. The use of the longish exposure is clever. Great mood overall, of course!
