Composition top notch, Cliff: the Rowan leaning in on the left and the curves of the heather clad f/g grasses acting like a bowl for the Quiraing blocks to nestle in.
I never tire of views from this exceptional but of the Skye terrain, so visually pleasing and geologically exciting, and this image is exceptional IMHO in every aspect and detail.

A glowing accolade from Ronnie, and I can't disagree with any of it. A real beauty, Cliff.

Pity I too gave you a User Award yesterday as today's is a worthy contender too
and two in a row would look like favouritism!!
This is a wonderful landscape of Skye and those photogenic mountains.
The inclusion of the rowan tree in it's aged splendour adds greatly to the composition.

Fabulous composition and that wonderful soft light Cliff. Love the heather in the foreground and that single tree. Many congratulations on your HC - very well deserved.

Late in the day judging by the angle of the light Cliff, a place I do love to visit.
