Did you wait for that red truck to take the photo? Makes it "snap".

The insignificance of man in the scale of the landscape. Even if he is a television superstar with a famous cat.
Dreamy mistiness, the thrill of isolation.

A sense of scale, in various ways.
I was wondering how long you waited for a vehicle to come by - and how good it felt when it was a recognisable and colourful one.

Ivor it was taken at 12.09, now I normally get my post in Glasgow between 12.30 and 1pm.

Moira I was waiting to some extent to see if a woman I had passed would catch me up, she made no attempt to get a lift and I never offer a lift to anyone.

She didn't appear, but then she might have been in the Post Van? We'll never know.

Dougie

better interest than the angler from yesterday.

A huge feeling of isolation and loneliness leaps from the screen, however the splash of post box red adds immediate comfort and a link with the outside world.

Lovely. The van gives it that much-needed sense of scale. But it would be good without, too.

Superb panorama of a wonderful place.

The postal van provides a wonderful sense of scale and a great focal point. Inspired work Sir.

Do the Post Buses still operate in Scotland? This is wonderful Dougie with the little van speeding on its way through this magnificent scenery.
