I have been lucky enough to visit Scotland end of September 2019 and it was a totally recharging experience to immerse into beautiful and unknown nature. Looking back on it today, not only it feels like a lifetime ago but once again I feel so fortunate to have had the chance to go exploring a little portion of this amazing globe we’re living in…travelling feels like finding pure gold these days, and I really hope we will all be able to get back moving around the world soon.
I am particularly fond of this set of photos. My love affair with electricity poles photography (I’m joking but…is that even a genre?) started back in 2018 in Iceland where, to be honest, I didn’t photograph any electricity pole at all but I spent most of my time looking at them and admiring how beautifully strange into glorious nature they were. So when I saw them in Scotland, I somehow felt in debt and I knew I had to commit to a little side project with them as protagonists.
As the photos show, most of the time skies were heavy, pregnant and silver, and whenever it rained the weather was glimmering! The sun cracked in with great shyness every now and then, and some chilly breeze was ever present. Typical Scotland weather, I suppose, that anyway granted me with some unforgettable moody landscapes.
And now, back to selecting and editing Scotland, chapter two that I am going to publish in few weeks.
