This frame was captured within the outer limits of the village of Mgarr.

The title to the frame was suggested by 'Peter Pan'.

Some tweaks & enhancements were applied to the sky in PS to add the desired mood & drama to the scene.

Shot very late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Exposure :- 1/15s - @F16 + ND Grad.
ISO 200 - Raw

Cheers,
Bert Wink
