Mint Chocolate

Kinloss, Moray, Scotland

Regimented columns of misty Scots pine are captured in a dark and secluded woodland at Kinloss near the Moray coast on a breathlessly still winter morning. In some areas the trails lead past individual beech and birch trees the latter being complete with a blaze of copper coloured dead leaves still attached to their leaf stems due to a thickening process known as marcesscense. The mist is a lovely bonus as it uniquely reduces clutter by virtue of decreased visibility with the pine trees fading away in the distance. Photo © copyright by Ian Cameron.
