This is stunning Bill. Really wonderful shapes and I love the dark toning. It reminds me of red velvet and has a mysterious, luxurious look to it.

A really unique image Bill! The trees have a very surreal/mysterious feel to them, really well done.

Thanks to all for the nice comments about this image.

Sometimes, even in the worst weather imaginable, we see light talking to us as we pass by. Such it was with this image.

I was cold, very cold. I was disappointed in the light that surrounded me. Here I was in Scotland, close by was the Great Shepard. Yet, as I walked, here in a small corner, light and color addressed me.

Which goes to say that one should always look. Light will talk to you if you listen.

My best regards and appreciation to each of you for your comments and encouragement.

Abstract and riveting. Great eye.
Life without a camera is possible but pointless!
