Nice to see you back, Dougie, I'm sure with another batch of superb Highland landscapes. This is a lovely shot to start again with, so well composed and showing off the open vastness of this part of the land.

Thanks Ronnie, the weather was less than kind most of the time, this was one of the few bursts of sunshine, but I have a few to show for the journey.

So good to have you back with a great collection from the north, I have no doubt about that. As much as I know your weather has been kind to you - which is well shown in this picture. The absolutely still water under the bridge is of an amazing blue, the landscape a walking paradise and that cottage by the trees a welcoming place. Ah...............!

Been there and photographed that croft house several times but have never seen this old bridge. Looks as though I'm going to have to put my glasses on next time we're up that way and see if I can find it then Smile
