Gorse brightens up a dull day in this Highland Glen.

My thanks to all who commented on Seeking The Light and with special thanks to Dave {WhiteRose1} for his User Award which is much prized.

Indepth greatness here Ronnie bringing us the rugged beauty
from the Highlands. Colours and balance just perfect, the stone
wall showing what it is made of too.

Auch that's a bonnie view towards Black Mount Ronnie, I've passed here so often and never had a look down in this Glen.
Good for you my friend.

A rather impressive landscape photograph Ronnie, crammed packed full of gorgeous detail, captured from a great point of view which allows me to wander the highlands at my leisure.

beautifully composed and wonderful soft colours, as you say rightly, brightened up by the gorse which certainly also added a lovely perfume.

Great lead in, great diagonal, but the contrast between the almost luminous yellow of the gorse and the grey sky is superb, Ronnie.

Long time since I have seen such bonnie gorse, Ronnie. It certainly does light up an overcast day as well as contrasting with that bleak looking distant sky.

Nothing like the gorse to brighten up a day and a landscape.
Good composition and DOF.
1 Sep 2012 10:29AM
the gorse has given you a good f/g and partial framing for the shot and added some bady needed colour.
if only we has some blue skies to illuminate these fine glens and views

The gorse gives a wonderful splash of vibrant colour and much enhances the composition. Was it a vintage Spring for the gorse this year ... it was wonderful when we were north of the border in May.
