...marching along the banks of the River Ledy towards Loch Lubnaig in Perthshire. Trees are coming down fast in Scotland, the march of timber lorries along the roads where estates are cutting timber. Then Mother Nature steps in and culls the single trees with lightning strikes, is this another side to global warning?

Nice detail in this green landscape. Probably a bit early to tell if this summer's weather is as a result of climate change, we need to look for new patterns emerging, not just one-off wet and stormy summers. On the other hand, this summer probably fits with the predicted patterns caused by climate change for Scotland.

Beautiful image.

I have noticed over the last few years the amount of our big woodland trees that are look like they are sick or dieing. At first I thought it was just younger farmers and land owners not being willing to invest either money or man hours in keeping them up. But it seems others have noticed also, and not just in Scotland. There is a big experiment going on at the moment to see what other species of trees will grow in the UK and Europe.

I really like this for many reasons - the varying greens I find attractive with the hills in the b/g and the lovely strong reflections in the water, great picture. I tried to get hill shots in the Malverns, thinking of you and your images (returned home last night) we were either too close or struggling to get above the hedges, when higher up with a good view we were driving on a busy road and couldnt stop - then there were the clouds that obliterated the hills altogether and of course the bloomin rainSad
you seem to get everything right and I am envious

The waters as the Loch enters the river here are often very still and allow great reflections, Dougie.
I don't know about global warming.......for this part of the world I can't wait for it to comeWinkWink
Another fine shot from a favourite spot for me........I have dozens of views from around here in all weathers, mostly wet and misty.
