Resting in the Autumnal Forest
Cairngorms National Park, Scotland
I was walking through the forest looking out compositions to capture the stunning autumn colours of the beach and birch trees. When I heard the familiar noise of a red squirrel scurrying about the trees. As I was standing with a 12-40mm lens in my hand I thought no chance I will get an image of it. Although I was carrying my 40-150mm I did not think I had time to change lenses. It had not noticed me and it had stopped to take a rest in the tree tops. So I thought how close would it allow me to get to capture it in it’s beautiful forest habitat.
