Bowmont Forest, July 2015. I always enjoyed my annual visits to The Scottish Borders. Catching up with the family against a backdrop of rolling fields and that famous big-borders-sky. I’d always make time for a wander through the town of Kelso, with a trip to Sainsbury’s to stock up on all the British delights I’d been deprived of throughout the year. An afternoon walk around Bowmont Forest with my dad, brother and dog Solo was another highlight. While my visits were usually timed for Christmas, this rare summer shot came following an eighteen-month stint in Asia. Everything felt so heightened; from the crisp country air and rich colors to the rustling leaves and crunching twigs underfoot.
