West Lothian 1 & 2 October 2018
The sunrise on 2 October was very strange - it was shrouded by cloud thick enough to cause the sun to appear as a big disk, but not so thick as to obscure it. I was driving past Ochiltree (near Kingscavil & Ecclesmachan) in West Lothian when I noticed it.
I've played around with the processing - to give dark foregrounds, emphasizing the sun and lighter foregrounds to bring the trees out a bit.
I took 3 exposures of each view and selected the look I wanted from each.
The plane vapour trails help.
Some very mossy trees in Polkemmet Country Park.
Same tree - portrait format
Memorial to Robert Baillie 4th Baronet of Polkemmet. It is inscribed: "In Loving Memory of Robert Baillie 4th Baronet of Polkemmet. Major, King's Colonials J Y who having served his own generation by the will of God fell on sleep 16th October 1997 Aged 98 years."
Sadly, the vandals have been active.
I always think of the Barron Knights song - to the tune of "Matchstick men" - gives me a strange feeling!
With big rosettes and coloured scarves
There is a line of trees near the memorial, that have a pleasing look. Good that the paths have recently been replaced, it was getting a bit muddy, and it makes the dog poo more obvious, so it's easier to avoid!
