...built by hand many years ago and largely negated by the building of dams and flow control, but the water still nibbles away at this bend in the River Lyon.
wonderful comp dougie super colour and light belting textures too a cracker nice one
isnt water just wonderful ... it will always win in the end
Great comp here
Lovely dappled shadows from the tree. Could just imagine myself sitting under here taking in the scene. Moira
Interesting what you see when you look Dougie, good details and use of the shade.
Superb composition, love the light. Excellent.
We never seem to learn........still building on flood plain areas, and then have to consider spending tens of millions on flood protection.
Interesting and substantial relic from past days here, Dougie.
Good record of our attempt to hold back water !! Dougie.
Part of the landscape now. At least being built of stone this will be more resistant to burrowing rabbits than the earthwork defences along the Tyne.
That's a rather graceful curve that looks more natural than most modern flood defences that draw on the brutalist architecture of the Atlantic Wall. The stone is as dappled as the light. Very lovely.
Interesting how we find these features in the landscape. Despite the natural look sometimes there's hardly a square foot of UK landscape untouched by man. Well photographed scene and, as Bill says, the dappled light is reflected in the texture and tones of the wall.
Yes a good find Dougie, Well photographed to go with a short but precise narrative.
This just shows that man can, by using what nature provides, build something that blends in and looks as if it belongs in the landscape, as opposed to something delivered by a cement lorry.
good ole Scottish countryside
I love these old walls - did you know there's even one on top of Suilven dividing one landowner's slice from the other's? Goodness knows how they took the stones up there to build it...
But this is beautiful with that lovely dappled light.
Ann, it's been suggested that the landowners built the walls and many other walls to provide employment for locals.
It is that old, that it got part of the landscape - lovely light and shadows, a beautiful place for a wee rest on the walk.
What a nice day!
