Ha, too cute! Grin Your usual super-sharp detail, minimalist comp, lovely blurred undistracting backdrop and characterful pose by your 'model.' Wonderful stuff Smile

Excellent image Sylvia - just timed to perfection. We were in Scotland this time last year and I so wish we had gone back this year - maybe in a couple of months or so. The Aviemore area is teeming with photographic opportunities! Lou
