Another from that breezy morning. This time a view I've shot before but a slightly different comp and grass again. The grass is a different species to my last upload and shot later in the morning hence a different colour. I like the static rocks in the moving vegetation.

A landscape, captured in the unconventional portrait format, however ditch the 'Rule Book' and you will see a rather gorgeous landscape which has you gripped from the off, simply beautiful, and one of which I admire greatly.

Can't fault you on this one, Al. Starting in the bottom right corner, the boulders lead you to the fence which in turn takes you into the centre of the image. There's some lovely textures and colours in the lichen on those boulders, and the warm moving grass gives a wonderful soft contrast. I like the cloud detail and the composition is balanced and well thought out. If pushed to suggest anything, maybe a tad more on the left to show the corner of that front boulder.

Thanks for your lovely comments Nathan, Dave, Richard and Ronnie. Thanks also to Dave for the, as ever, very useful deconstruction and critique and most importantly, your constructive suggestion. I have one that is wider angle (probably too much so) showing the full boulder but the light was not as good. For this one I'd zoomed in a bit to make more of the background hills. Your comment reminds me to slow down and carefully check all the frame edges before pressing the cable release! Smile
