...what I think was an old sheet enclosure on the banks of Loch Loyal.
Great shot - love the detail in the wall.
There must be so many such abandoned structures up that way, the bones of a life style that's so much less common these days, Dougie.
A reminder of past times.
Massive boulder with the sophistication of the stretcher stones to hold them together. OK I'm an anorak over dry stone walling techniques...
Lovely composition, tones & textures, almost tactile.
Like the good details and tones in this Dougie, good comp too
I remember when I lived in East Lancashire seeing all the dry stone walls and wondering at the sheer amount of skilled labour that went into building them.
An interesting image Dougie. Very nicely compoosed.
Like the comp Dougie with the loch just peeping through
and a good lead into the shot
Needs another brick Dougie
I think it may be another wall to keep these English out Dougie.
Built by another tight fisted Scotsman.
He appears to have skimped on the cement !!
hoe intriguing ....
I can see all sorts in this image
wont tell you tho' as you might send out the men in white coats
Lovely shot this....brilliant
Excellent, I love the tiny peep at the loch.
good stuff Dougie. Difficult to get the Northumbrian dry stone walls repaired Now. There are one or two people in our locality doing it but not mush fun during the winter months.
The piled-up rocks make a great lead-in! How long did it take you to arrange them all? The dead heather(?) provides a ver rich complimentary colour.
Fascinating shot !!......but why would they want to enclose 'sheets' ??........ah !!, maybe if they fell off the washing line ??, that's it !!.
Cracking s hot. MAkes me want to go up there & start repaiar work, but too busy working on my own version of Hadrians Wall.
This is a shot I would have walked by without a second look and you've made it special Dougie. Superb - and couldn't be anywhere except Scotland!
Ann that's very kind indeed, I don't get lots of these so they are VERY special when they arrive, Many Thanks.
Loved your comment too, and must admit I've passed here a few times over the years, but the light was just right this time.
Keith, misspelling one of my failures in life sadly. SHEEP it should be,
A very well observed, composed and exposed image...
Great sky on a lovely composition, the colours retained well
Beautiful colours all over the image, nice composition, the eyes just "walk" along the wall.
