"City Rooftop View"

By RonnieAG
A view from Queen's Park over the City of Glasgow towards Dumgoyne and the snow capped Campsie Hills: the spire against the skyline on the left is the the gothic tower of the University of Glasgow.

My thanks to all who commented on Orchid.

A very interesting contrast between the Gothic spires that were designed to lift Man's focus upwards towards God and heaven, and the equally tall high-rises of the 60's designed for totally other reasons. Although, the way people were forced together in these monstrosities could make one think of God's sheep herded together?

A great image of the roofline and the Campsie hills in the background, reminds me of the days when I drove past or through the city on my way to highlands.

Thanks for sharing.

A stunning layered composition working upwards from the older part of this Historical Scottish City towards the modern urban sprawl, then onto the ever protecting wonderfully illuminated and snow capped Campsie Hills. "A real belter of an image Ronnie"

When I clicked the thumbnail I was expecting it to be some foreign land bordering Russia or thereabouts, I guess it is still foreign mind when you're from Yorkshire :o) Superb shot Ronnie.

Excellent image, Ronnie. The first thing I noticed was the colour. Lovely banding, the beige terraces in the foreground with the grey roofs are matched by the light and shade on the hills, with the white caps of the tower blocks and snow respectively. The clock spire is perfectly placed on the left third, and it pulls the horizontals together so well.

Brings back memories, part of me will always be in Scotland. The Campsies look beautiful as a backdrop Ronnie!
