What a great sky giving you light and shade to shape the contours of the scene.
Good lead in and love how the light hits the path, grass and bracken.
An image which grows on you the more you look at it.

They always say we should look up so as not to miss a photo opp, but this proves you have to look everywhere, Keith.
Such magnificent, powerful light you have captured here. Moody and brooding, yet also the promise of lighter times. An image of contrasts.

A great shot. I like the light that you've used as a lead in on the road. It draws the eye into the photo. I see you've used a 18-55 lens. I've heard a lot of talk dismissing kit lenses. It shows what you can do with one.
Thanks for sharing.
