Taken yesterday on a walk at Achnahannet with a couple of my kids. It was windy and rapidly moving patches of light appeared through the clouds. I had a job keeping the tripod still. The colours in this have actually been desaturated, particularly the heather which seemed unnaturally magenta! This was a fence line I'd noted on a previous walk here and luckily I managed to get set up before all the sunlight passed the farm

Lovely lighting here. Nice rich colour in this well composed 'scape.

Marvellous dappled light and the heather looks fine, it has been particularly vivid this year I've found too.

The movement of the heather in the foreground is quite disorientating but seems to give a 3D effect to the image. Not sure I could improve on your composition, Al, some lovely layers, well time for the light, and the strength is the fence curving through the heather.
