    Beautiful landscape once again, Scott.
    I’m probably sounding like a ‘broken record’ but you really do have a gifted way of making the scene come alive as though one is walking through the landscape with you.
    Haven’t worked out whether it is the contrast, light or composition, but I’ve very impressed.

  3. It looks like some dream-scape out of “The Hobbit” or some fantasy tale where there’s so much detail to take in! Excellent picture Scott! Cheers…
