October Snow and Cuillin

Landscape from South Skye. First snow on the barren red hills. On the high banks of the River Lusa cling two dead Scots pine and an oak. The red of autumnal deer grass is further reddened by the low sun. Here are trees with leaves of gold and branches which are ancient in growth.
