"Campsie View"

By RonnieAG
A view of the shadowed Campsies Hills from the path to '"The Whangie": the two small white dots just to left of centre are vehicles on the Glasgow to Drymen road.
The stile is there to help one negotiate a fence which has all but disappeared.

My thanks to all who commented on Walk This Way, and with special thanks to Fred {Badgerfred} for his User Award.

Ah, a braw picture of the motherland.
Living in the South of England now, the "natives" don't get it when I say that I miss seeing hills, even a wee one like this! This is exactly what i'm missing.

A splendid shot, of a lovely part of the world.

Good capture Grin

Not much use as a stile anymore but an excellent piece of foreground interest, and with the tree on the left gives a frame to the view beyond. Lovely bit of landscaping, Ronnie.

A fine image of some Scottish walking country.
Clive and I climbed Conic Hill a few yeas ago - the steps damned near killed me!!
Is The Whangie an easier climb?
The style and the tree lead us nicely along that path.

I remember back in 1986 when I went on a coach holiday to the Isle of Skye, we had an overnight stay in Drymen on our return home - a lovely little village Smile And this certainly is a lovely view, Ronnie, of this beautiful part of the world Smile

Luv the composition, Ronnie, well thought out and put together, works really well with the foreground interest. Sorry i have missed your recent images, but had time to take a quick look, quite superb and up to your usual high standard.
Well done my friend.

A most unusual stile (to me at any rate) don't tell me you resisted taking a shot from its platform!
You've captured a wee bit of Scotland in all its glory here Ronnie!
Rgds., Jim
PS. Most annoying now, the times I spent in the Trossachs, Drymen, Balmaha area, coincided with a period I was sans camera Sad
