This is an image where we were climbing to a higher level, on a path that takes us to the main road which was at a higher level. While climbing up, it was late afternoon and because of the slope and the direction of the sun, the sun seemed to be over the horizon and was presenting a lovely portrayal of the light silhouetting the greenery. It was a coincidence, but the light seemed to have a cloud formation emerging from it, and that made for an even more interesting picture.

This kind of photo would seem nothing great, but people who live in cities typically do not get this kind of view. Lots of trees, nobody else but us in sight, and it being late afternoon, the sun was slowly starting to make its way down; no longer very bright or harsh, and with clouds over the horizon, the sun was covered by these clouds. The trees looked good, although the trees were not overly laden with leaves; with summer on the way in a few weeks, the trees would start developing a lot of new leaves.

Yet another photo of a tree, a tree standing on the small slope of a hillock (rather than a hill or a mountain) in the Scottish Highlands. In the immediate vicinity of this tree, the land has more of bushes and grass rather than any other tree. However, the light behind the tree, the spreading of the branches of the tree, all of this make this an interesting location.

With these photos, the attempt was also to see whether the setting (or slowly going down) sun could be captures just behind the tree trunk, apparently seeming to peek from behind the tree trunk and make a sort of star effect. The photo below does show something like this, and I was satisfied with the final photo (I could have tried HRD and other effects), but the photos here are shown as they come out from the camera, without any effects, and I will continue to promote that.
