"My Home"

By RonnieAG
My Home.........well, it's down there somewhere: a view from the edge of Eaglesham Moor across Glasgow towards the Campsie Hills.

My thanks to all for kind comments on Going Solo and special thanks to Annette {annettep38} for her User Award.

Very beautiful framing here Ronnie, Glasgow has come a long way, I remember the flats with the top floors in the smoke, now some great photography opportunities.

Needless to say, I would!! I suppose it is a susprise to anyone who hasn't visited the city. Like the natural frame of the tree and some lovely light.

Glasgow never looked so good, Ronnie. A beautiful spot to rest in the shade of that tree on a summer's day and enjoy the vista.
Perfectly framed by the man behind the cameraSmile

A lovely expansive view, Ronnie but the beauty is in the frame itself, excellent shapes and textures in the stone wall and tree, both bathed in a gorgeous low light.

What I like the most about this image Ronnie, is that on the surface it looks just like any other run of the mill 'snapshot', however when one begins to explore further one can see that it has been composed quite carefully, and captured from a great point of view. The layered colours of the meadows is something quite beautiful, as is the depth of detail, and the natural framing. A very pleasing and comforting image indeed.

I'm not even Scottish but I must defend Glasgow;
if you don't think Glasgow is picturesque, it's time to take a trip up here!!!!!Tongue
There is wonderful architecture and lots of great parks
and as seen here in Ronnie's image plenty green belt areas
to enjoy and admire the city beyond.
Lovely framing here Ronnie.

This is an excellent landscape shot Ronnie. superb detail and colour, large was well worth the time. I have only been to Glasgow once, that was in the early eighties when I went to an exhibition hall by the riverside. If I can persuade my wife I would like to see BOTH main cities of Scotland.
Very well framed Ronnie, good frame filler, lots of good detail good lead in good eye catching image.

As Dave says, clever use of light and objects for framing the view, turns an urban scene into an almost pastoral view!
