Excellently composed capture with the path and walkers leading you in to the valley Ronnie, the yellow of the wild flowers giving excellent foreground interest with the background full of atmosphere.

Good DOF in a lovely Highland scene.
I love the gorse in f/g - it adds so much
to our landscapes.

Mist and gorse look positively charming in this lovely view. The path Leeds through the charming composition to the lake, almost hidden in the mist. A beauty.
Right now I can hardly see the other end of the garden... And it is not for the weeds! Autumn mist I thinkSad

A very lovely scene Ronnie - certainly a "I wish I was there" scene - like the composition on this one with the path leading you into the valley beyond

It's all been said, Ronnie. The tantalising lead in that disappears round the bend then goes on into the mists of the glen, the gorse and wall give the foreground interest and contrast with the misty distance, and the figures for scale. Some strong diagonals and the yellow/green colour scheme makes a well-balanced and beautiful scene despite the weather conditions.

Great lead-in and such glorious colours, but summing up weather condtions in Scotland at the moment rather well! I actaully managed a day of gardening on Sunday when the sun broke through and it didn't rain until evening but we're back to the standard this morning. Bah!!

As a recent visitor to Scotland I can really appreciate this excellent image. The gorse in May was spectacular wherever we went.

Superbly captured and a great comp Ronnie, excellent work mate.

Looks typical Highlands summer weather! Wink But the mistiness has worked well for you Ronnie, and gives the scene a feeling of depth. I'd love to be wandering along that path, grey weather or no grey weather! Smile

Beautifully composed and captured landscape Ronnie. If I had taken it I might have been tempted to clone out the fence posts - I have a pet hate of wire fences which,I admit, is quite neurotic! A

A very atmospheric landscape Ronnie, that sky looks ominous. I know how these walkers feel, I got caught out on Cleeve Hill yesterday with epzer Looloobey and her husband Paul and we got thoroughly soaked!
