Duncan said: "Galloway Forest Park has been particularly hit with the virus Phytophthora ramorum attacking and killing the vast areas of larch trees we have in the Park.

"I was out early one morning last year on the Raiders' Road near Clatteringshaws hoping to get a few shots of the morning mist. On my way home I spotted this lonesome larch amongst the sitka spruce trees showing its full autumn colours. I guess it was a seedling that had taken root amongst the other trees.

"It was a fair distance away from my location and unable to get any closer due to a river, I used my 200mm lens to get the shot.

"I now wonder if it evaded the virus due to its location away from the other larch trees in the forest."
