I know the place well, and you have done justice to the place with your shot. Exposure on the cottage is spot on.

And yet another cracking capture Sue, wonderful colours and detail, makes you want to spend your holiday here...though I suspect it's a long walk home from the nearest pub! Wink

Super close up of this lovely old cottage Sue. I wonder what the Iron Gate is for? maybe to keep Animals out, or is it to keep them in ? Smile

Myself I prefer the close up,there's a similar size cottage on our land,it's the same from the window on the right hand side ,down to the bottom left.
Have you been inside the cottage,?Smile Love the snow on top of the mountain Smile
