Peter Cairns: Scotland, the Big Picture (PERTH) @ Salutation Hotel

Peter Cairns: Scotland, the Big Picture (PERTH) @ Salutation Hotel | Scotland | United Kingdom

Scotland is a nature-depleted nation – its large carnivores have gone and the balanced ecosystem that emerged from the ice has unravelled. But a bold new vision has started to evolve: one of native woodland, restored peatland and a landscape driven by natural processes. In this stunning presentation, Peter showcases the work of a team of dedicated photographers and film-makers who have gathered images to make the case for a wilder Scotland.
