In the late Autumn in Scotland, the sun is never particularly high in the sky. On clear days it's a time of long shadows and the sun getting in your eyes, as it sneaks under the brims of hats, hoods and sun visors.
From a photographer's point of view though, it also means a lot of back-lighting - silhouettes with rims and halos of light.
Not that you get it very often - this time of year is known more for its wind and rain. Come to think of it pretty much every time of year in Scotland is known for its wind and rain.
However, when its not raining or overcast and the sun is out, then a walk through the woods with the sun low in the sky can be really quite magical.
Below are a few photos I took a couple of weeks back, making the most of last of the Autumn leaves and a sunny day.
As always, click on the photos for slightly larger versions
I'm toying with the idea of setting up a separate space to put my non-people photos. Putting them on my main site isn't really an option - there I need to promote my portraiture and narrative photography and I don't want to confuse matters.
But perhaps a dedicated Facebook page or something might be an option.
Hmmm... watch this space...
