winter trees in Cairngorms National Park


forest of snows
nature’s inner beauty
so sweet and intimately
deep inside my heart

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Kathie πŸ’œ I am getting braver with using more of the manual settings on my bridge camera and it is making a difference. The sunlight casts a warmer colour too in Winter, which is a great help! Glad you enjoyed the info πŸ˜‰πŸ’– xxx
