It was a beautiful still morning and fog gathered over the landscape like the remains of a giant pillow fight.

The fog would come and go in patches as I drove along rural Perthshire roads. Sometimes it would be clear for hundreds of metres before arriving in an area with minimal visibility.

In one of the thickest patches of fog, a pheasant emerged in a field.

It stood still, appearing very relaxed. Perhaps it knew it would be safe from the prying eyes of predators that morning.

As the fog came and went, the landscape took on a blue-green shade, with the colour of the pheasant standing out beautifully. It’s red feathered chest and white collar providing a focal point in an otherwise empty scene.
