Helen, thanks for your comments. I know what you mean about the horizon as that sort of thing catches my eye too. Thats why I take all my landscape shots on a tripod using a spirit level on the camera's hot shoe as its the only way I can be sure of getting the levels right.
What you see here is not the horizon but the land sloping up from the left. Thats just the way it is.
Regards,
Brian

Cracking capture (excuse the pun) loads of foreground detail and interest, leading your eye up the frame. Excellent work, well seen.

A wonderful shot, it has everything strong foreground interest, strong background, great shapes and textures. Love it, and congrats on the deserved HC and RC.
