Taken from the top of the Wallace National Monument in Stirling (246 steps!!!!!)

Several people have commented that this looks like a painting, but it's actually a straight scan!

Tanya, this looks just like a painting! Smile I went up the Wallace Monument last year and I think I have a shot of the exact same field but at a different time of year. I'm going to hunt it down and post it.

Tanya, found my shot from the Wallace Monument, posting it now. Wonder how many times this field has been photographed?

Powerful shot that is far, far better than my attempts at such images. I would, personally, have preferred it if it were rotated about 7-8 so that the hedge were level (and the tree were straight) rather than the first set of furrows being level. But horses for courses.

Tanya, this is a superb image and I don't understand why its had little attention. Its a strong and pleasing composition with varied textures and colours which have instant impact. A great piece of work.

Hi Mark - I've only just realized you'd commented on this image, so a very late thank you for that Smile I think this image was done back in the day when my processing skills were still in their infancy (to say the least) and I think that if I processed it nowadays, I'd do it completely differently.

But your kind comment is appreciated Grin
