...taken a couple of weeks ago, in the Borders near Bigga one of the best areas of Scotland for peaceful rolling hills. I liked the stand of trees which seemed to be moving up the hill to meet the row of clouds.

Morning Dougie, what a line of trees and what great shadows they cast, love this one particularly, a beauty and topped off with a sky to die for..

Morning David, I was pleased when I found this with the clouds rolling in. The whole area here is just wonderful to wander and watch.

I cannot believe that yu actually saw this scene Dougie. It is an absolutely photographers delight but only you could see it as such and reproduce itI have short listed this and as it will be the only ne I shortlist you should get an award from me but alas senility follows around and this may be the last you hear of it but my intentions are good.
