Matchwood Mountain...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...the smell of cut wood was heavy in the air, I think it's the oil in the wood that gives off the aroma.

A rather well thought out composition, which works so very well. The sky poking above the wood stack certainly provides the viewer with a sense of scale and proportion. "If it could be possible, I would like to see the very same imaged captured in a lowlight setting, either dusk or dawn?"

Regards Nathan

P.S. "I don't ask for much?"

Again, Nathan is spot on here. A B&W conversion would be beneficial too to highlight the texture captured.

I loved taking this because of the wonderful rich colours of the wood, a monochrome conversion would lose all of that.

I can just imagine the wonderful scent in the air from this freshly cut conifer wood, Dougie: the colours and tones are well recorded, and the interplay of bright and shadowed areas make some tight patterning across the image.

I can almost smell it too Dougie Smile
Make great patterns don't they, I like the colours and the textures too!
Love this as it is but think a square crop could work too with just the wood, no sky at all... ?

You certainly have been busy cutting all that wood Dougie. I hope it keeps you going all winter. There's a lovely richness to this image and i'm sure it was not easy to choose your viewpoint. Simple but very effective.

Lovely colours, textures & patterns.
Don't like meeting the timber lorries on the narrow glen roads though !

You've got us all sniffing now Dougie!! Smile I love the textures and shapes of cut wood - each one here would make its own abstract.

A towering statement, positive and dynamic. The use of portrait is inspired!

Well welcome back and many thanks Moira, I did fiddle around here for some time before shooting the upright, it was urged by the appearance of some blue in the sky behind the cut wood.. Gold and blue being the classic colours.

Cheers M'Dear. :GrinWink

This could have been taken anywhere in Norway.

A sight and smell I am so familiar with, Dougie. The aroma of newly felled and stacked timber is nectar to the senses, as is the texture and sight of the stacks.
Magnificent, and agree wholeheartedly, this has to be colour.

Love your title ! Super image and glad you kept in the sky to show that we sometimes we see it up here. Adelightfully common sight when walking in the hills and glens and adore the scent too ! Gill

Beautiful colour and texture in the wood.

Unfortunately, it reminds me only too well of the big pile of logs in our garden that awaits me and the chainsaw!
