Marching up the Hill...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...taken a couple of weeks ago, in the Borders near Bigga one of the best areas of Scotland for peaceful rolling hills. I liked the stand of trees which seemed to be moving up the hill to meet the row of clouds.

Morning Dougie, what a line of trees and what great shadows they cast, love this one particularly, a beauty and topped off with a sky to die for..

Morning David, I was pleased when I found this with the clouds rolling in. The whole area here is just wonderful to wander and watch.

Very graphic type shot for you.
Light and shade, tight comp and position of clouds meld into a strong image.

Now what jumped out at me first was the line of clouds rolling down to meet the trees. Fabulous composition, one of your best. Favourited, short listed, I'll come back to this one many times. (Just to warn you that I'll be messing up your statistics...)
Moira
The stats don't mean a lot anyway Moira, I wonder what some people are looking for when they open an image?

Delightful capture of the Borders, it could only be there even though the grass looks a little less wild than usual.

I cannot believe that yu actually saw this scene Dougie. It is an absolutely photographers delight but only you could see it as such and reproduce itI have short listed this and as it will be the only ne I shortlist you should get an award from me but alas senility follows around and this may be the last you hear of it but my intentions are good.

Great composition. I love the simplicity of this shot. The diagonal line of the trees pointing one way and the line of the hill the other.

Love this one Doug. Great composition, colour and a great sky.
Was over at a wedding in Dunfermline at the weekend, lots of Kilts, unfortunately didnt get to see much of the landscape though.
