Magical Midlothian - Savanna Scotland

Lion King Tree Looky Likey

No, it’s not the Serengeti or Hell's Gate National Park in Kenya that the Lion King Movie was based around. In fact, it’s a tree found in Scotland UK. I took advantage of a setting summer sun to capture the most amazing sundown image over the grasslands of Bonnyrigg, Midlothian. What a glorious evening it was and a pleasure to watch nature just do its thing.

Okay I’m taking it to another level, it’s that time of year again when picking your own fruit becomes an option. However, I didn’t go for the usual variety of strawberry this year. Not too sure when the fire extinguisher variety come into season, maybe I was just lucky, got this basket of assorted fire extinguishers on a beautiful day when the sun was out. Some crackers and decent sized ones in there too, you don’t get many of them to the pound!
