Excellent lead through, Al, and the receding slopes picked out by the shadows look great. Late night or early morning??Grin

Wow, cheers Andy, Ant, Netta, Dave and John!
Dave, who said you never read my missives? Tongue The clue to time of day is in the photo blurb! WinkGrin I was thinking about previous advice you've given me when I composed this shot: the RHS and FG slopes were in full sunlight with little relief so I had to show as little of them as possible whilst still retaining the ruin and the lead in line.

The scale of the scene can be appreciated by the lone homestead here: wonderful interplay of light and shade with the valley bottom meandering into the middle and far distance.
In other words, a fine composition and captured at an excellent time of day.
Ronnie.

Love the diagonal lead-in and the interplay between light and shadow Alan.

Thanks Ronnie, Diane and Derek. It's a shot I'd been planning for a week or two, just had to wait for a clear morning.
Dave, I was actually coming home from an early morning! I'd been up a hill for sunrise and returned to this spot on my way back to the car. I had to wait for the shadow to receed from the ruined croft though, which made me late getting home and under pressure trying to get to work on time!

Thanks Nik and Jeanie! I was lucky that morning. Luck has nothing to do with your photo being selected for 'featured e2 photo' Jeanie, just pure talent! Well done Smile
