I took this image on a recent family outing to Palacerigg Country Park in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. It was taken from a treetop walk looking (I think!) North.

We’re frequent visitors to Scotland and I often try to take photographs from this spot. This is the first one that I’ve ever been happy with.

You can see for such a long way in the distance and I think I’ve got the balance between land and sky about right. I also love the green and brown colours which, for me, make the scenery immediately identifiable as Scottish. ISO was set at 100, aperture f10, shutter speed 1/100 of a second and focal length 18mm.

I love shooting the Scottish landscape. I find it is either very calming and rural or dramatic and ever changing.

What’s your favourite landscape? Is there a favourite location you like to shoot pictures?

    1. I’m sure Wales can be just as beautiful Nigel! On that note, I don’t think I’ve been further than Newport or Cardiff. How bad is that?

    1. Thanks Darren. I can think of one ofr two street scenes I have on my memory card that would put you off visiting!

    1. Oh Scotland is ideal for photography. It has everything from these moorland scenes that are great in colour to horrendous housing estates that are great in B&W (think trainspotting).

  1. It just goes on and on! What an amazing textured landscape and I think you’ve got the land/sea balance just right.
    I was looking at the colour wheel this wkend and how blue and brown hues are good colourful bedfellows. Perfectly demonstrated here!
    I’ve only visited Edinburgh and Peables, and their landscapes are totally different!

    1. There’s just something about Scottish greens and browns you don’t see anywhere else! Thanks for commenting Merlinda.
