Weeds are only plants that grow where we find them undesirable Tongue. But I find this weedy view quite beautiful. Moira

I like this even better than yesterday's, Dougie: the wild flowers are more concentrated.
And I've just looked at the camera details. I shall be drooling for weeks to come.

I wonder how many balls have disappeared into that? Wonderful image, all about the foreground detail and texture - but the mountains provide a rather satisfying background.

Quite a few I'd think Moira, many cries of "four".

Works even better I feel in portrait format, Dougie: still find it hard to believe you found such a scene where you did.

It has to be viewed large to appreciate the well-located subtle blues concentrated on the lower lh third before advancing through the rest of the frame. Very well spotted and executed, Dougie.

You would be doing well to get out of that rough ina single shot, Dougie. Better off in a bunker! But what a marvellous place to play a round or two...

As has been mentioned, the portrait version showing more foreground with those wonderful wild flowers is stunning. I hope they don't get trodden down by all those golfers' wayward balls! Wink

How do your Golf partners feel about you pulling out your compact mid fairway Dougie?
Mind you who could resist faced with this scene.

Beautiful shot !!!.....love the composition, with the mountains fronted by that lovely Buttercup field !!!

It's been many years since I summited that hill (forget the name ?), a stupendous walk, from the cottage
in the lower reaches of the valley below it........thanks for rekindling that lovely memory !!.SmileSmile

Another great image. I think I like this one just a bit better than the landscape version.

Is this the famous Dragon's Tooth Dougie? It makes a perfect bg to these beautiful flowers. And such a lush green!

As ever you're bang on Johanna, I had to look it up myself. I've seen it so many times coming south into Ballachulish but it's kinda tucked away in between other mountains. It's a bit of a hike to get anywhere close to it. Wink

I think this is even better than the previous version. As others have said the format and closer attention to the foreground flowers make this a great image.
