Worthy of some type of award. A stunning comp with great light .. everything going for it. I have to say that I think the single tree on the let on its own would provide a stronger composition though.

Me too... as soon as I pick up my jaw that has dropped to the ground! The big version is an absolute MUST. I especially like the far right tree, with a touch of light on it against the darker hills.

Thanks very much for all the great C and C's everyone.
Thank you Keith, I consider that a great compliment.

You've waited for the light here all right Mr B, very special indeed, the colours of Autumn enhancing this great composition, very fine work as ever my friend. Highland Gold perfection, for me.
