Pity about the mess in the FG. There is some nice light beyond the fence but the rest of the scene is pretty drab & uninteresting for me I'm afraid.

Regards, Ian.

I really like the foreground - as an untamed tangle it has a remarkable gracefulness with all those curves of brambles, and I like the contrast of dark brambles and light dead stems. And the posts contain the Knoll.

It's something that could have been dire and has been made artful. Looks crisp to me, too. Jumped out at me from the Gallery, maybe cos it's Zummerzet!

God's county, Jo! It's quite a hard scene to photograph as Brent Knoll is fairly small and the foreground, as Wadna observes is a bit ordinary. I liked the two fence posts and the contrast between the tangled mass of hedgerow and the misty, simple lines of the view beyond.

Thanks for looking, Ron. Boy would I love to go to Scotland one day: there so much of it: I'd be like a kid in a sweet shop!


Best wishes,
