Indepth greatness here Ronnie bringing us the rugged beauty

beautifully composed and wonderful soft colours, as you say rightly, brightened up by the gorse which certainly also added a lovely perfume.

Great lead in, great diagonal, but the contrast between the almost luminous yellow of the gorse and the grey sky is superb, Ronnie.

Long time since I have seen such bonnie gorse, Ronnie. It certainly does light up an overcast day as well as contrasting with that bleak looking distant sky.

The gorse gives a wonderful splash of vibrant colour and much enhances the composition. Was it a vintage Spring for the gorse this year ... it was wonderful when we were north of the border in May.
