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.

Wow, stunning, (another reason I've always loved Scotland lol)....this pictures makes me want to grab a backpack, shove a few items in it, buy a ticket to Europe, and just leave.

It looks like the bushes are trying to reach up to the sun to be given more life. Nice one! :clap:

This is absolutely perfect in every way, Tuomas! I'm in love with this photograph.
It reminds me of the one you took in the botanical gardens in Lisbon, strangely enough...

I can see how you might think that this relates with the botanical gardens shot, it's a good point. But you're being too kind my friend! :blush:
Anyway, your support is much appreciated!
