The unique diversity of Scotland’s trees, forests and woodlands will be there for all to see at a free slideshow event to be held in Preston Village Hall, near Duns, on Thursday, October 6, starting at 7.30pm.

There is no entry fee and everyone is welcome. There will also be free refreshments during the interval.

Preston-based professional photographer Stephen Whitehorne will take you on a photographic journey to all parts of the country, seeking out the unique beauty of Scotland’s trees and forests; from the commanding presence of a solitary ash tree under brooding skies on the shores of remote Highland loch to the sunny, autumn splendour of a woodland shelter belt in the Borders.

Stephen said: “For me, trees have a profound presence in the landscape, a presence which, in Scotland, is frequently augmented by a sublime quality of light and the very tangible effects of climate. As such, trees represent a particular passion for me as a photographer, an endless source of inspiration.”
