Struggling by CuriousCorn Struggling by CuriousCorn
From a whisky distillery trip to Islay and Jura, West Coast of Scotland.

This is from the Oa peninsula and Oa Nature Reserve on Islay. These dry branches looked like dead miniature trees to me, and I tried to get that effect here by shooting them from a very low angle.

Processed from RAW in CS3, Cokin P121 and CPL filters used.
