It's sort of Rhine II redux Dave. Not my cuppa tea, but interesting color combinations.

It is my "cuppa tea." I like the feel of it. The slight drop across the horizon line makes it feel a bit off balance; a dead-flat horizon line would help (or maybe I'm just crooked).

I like it. It has a fine mood, which I don't sense at all in "Rhine II."

Dave,

This is a great leap in a new direction for you which I find highly rewarding.

Keep at it.

Thanks Walter and everybody.

We found ourselves having a picnic in the middle of nowhere on a recent visit to one of the nearby islands (South Uist) and looking out at a scene that was just so completely and utterly tranquil, nobody but us and no sounds. So after a short while, I sort of subconsciously started to photograph what seemed to me to be the essence of that tranquillity - hard to explain really, all I knew was that tranquillity didn't need to have much detail in it, in fact it was telling me it needed to lack detail.

Sorry for sounding all arty farty here, but that is what happened and now I look back at this image and it feels more like the image found me rather than I found it if you know what I mean - however I am going to stop writing now before I completely disappear up my own artsy fartsy arse.

Dave - here's another one, same day different place and quite a while after sunset and not so tranquil, but still with some nice pastel tones  :)

I think you could put together a fine collection of images like these two. Keep 'em coming!

Dave,

Having been and photographed in your part of the world I am acutely aware of how the grandeur and intimidation of the landscape can distract and command your attention.  But these two photographs shout resounding of the fact that LESS can often be much MORE.
