A well taken image...
Nice comp...
Well done...

Only been there once and it looked just like this, especially the dark, brooding sky!
A fine capture, Dougie and a great use of the square format to create a very well balanced image.

Lovely stuff Smile

I think I remember the original but I do not remember noticing the tiny red berries in the tree; they contrast rather nicely with the heather. Superb composition.
Once only I drove that road, alone, in a cloudburst; Whitsun 1976 I think. I remember the road but not the landscape Sad

Very beautiful composition. Love the soft greens on the hillsides. A very moody day captured perfectly............Sandy

I think this is one of the best that I have seen from this spot. You have really good depth and some nice colour in the heather and berries(?) in the foreground tree. The crop works well. You have inspired me to revisit this location!

A spot I'd love to visit again, Dougie: such a fabulous bit of the Skye scene and so interesting geologically. You have captured this one under such excellent light conditions, and in such a pleasing composition.

9 Feb 2012 - 3:55 PM

Wonderful composition.
What a place, just looking at this gives you the sense of freedom.

This brings back some great memories from this amazing place Dougie, I had very similar weather when I was there last year, hope to be back sometime this year. Your PP work brings this to life, very well done, Bill.

How fair was thou in summer time
Wi' a'thy clusters white
How rich and gay thy autumn dress,
Wi' berries red and bright!
On thy fair stem were mony names
Which now nae mair I see
But they're engraven on my heart,
Forget they ne'er can be
Oh rowan tree

This is such a beautiful image Dougie, heart-warming on a cold winter day.
