Scots pine trees line the track to the Pirn, Innerleithen, Borders.

As part of the Solo Exhibition group’s celebration of Earth Day, this image represents the way we take nature for granted. I almost didn’t take this photograph. It’s the sort of view which probably appears every day in some part of the world. How many of us just walk on by?

    Hello, hello Ranald!!!!!!!!!! OOOOO .. What a glorious capture … Such magnificent light on the snow and how I love the starry sun coming through these wonderful snow laden trees!!!!! WOW!!!!

  • Thank you Lois. The light was really really special today. The sun burst was a fluke and I am not ashamed to admit it.
