Glorious view, a beautifully-balanced composition. The sheer quantity of vegetation at first led me to imagine rather gentle, even sedate countryside - until I looked up at the viaduct, which gives scale to the hillside!

Like how you have used that tree inn the fg to block out a grey sky, but it also adds a lot of impact and leads the eye to the viaduct. Beautiful shot. Moira

Excellent composition with the lush vegetation typical of the beautiful countryside of Scotland, I like how you have placed the silver birch tree prominent in the foreground here Dougie,this is one area I have not managed to get to yet, but after seeing this shot it is on my list, beautifully captured my friend, Bill.

That tree is so eye-catching Dougie - one of Scotland's fine birches - and the grey stone railway arches add that extra to a beautiful image. Is the railway still in use? I'm not a great fan of 'summer green' but here the composition overcomes that for me.

As others have said, a perfect composition from a Glen I have travelled so often in the past, Dougie: the sunshine and lush greenery make what is often a rather drab spot so beautiful.
And I like the way the f/g shadowed grass bank balances with the shadowed tree covered hillside diagonally opposite.

Thanks for all the kind comments everybody and many thanks to Barbara for your UA, always a great pleasure.

the railway was built by wealthy engineers way back in Victorian steam train days. This particular line was built to take trippers who had sailed up Loch Earn which is at the bottom of this mountain and train them up the hills and over to Loch Tay at Killin, there they could board another steamer and sail the length of a second Loch all in the one day.
The railway track used to go right behind my friends house in Killin, the line has gone there but you can see the flat embankment clearly. At the viaduct in the picture, it's been turned into a walking and cycling track and it's well used by hardy people who puff themselves up the steep hill.

A pool of light in the valley. Plus man's imprint sitting very well in the landscape - after all, pretty well all of our landscape is man-made, one way or another.

I do hope you walked up the Hill to give us a view looking down. If not can you do it on your next visit please. An excellent if not simple landscape Dougie.

Lovely light and shadow here. The delicate FG flowers contrast nicely with the victorian viaduct and the looming sky. It's a good use of the birch to fill space and direct gaze to the viaduct but looking at the sky above the viaduct I'd say you could have included more for an even more brooding effect. Nice to see you continue making images that push compositional convention and give us all new ideas. Smile
