Lots of detail and colour to catch one's eye...would make a good jigsaw.

A very lovely shot, Nicely composed, great colours and lots of detail.
Best wishes,

I agree too.
Great compo and did you do some special PP to get that dramatic effect ?

Best regards

The house on the left appears to have a touch of HDR about it, Superb capture

Many thanks for the comments.
Regarding the clarity (Peter and Malc), I selectively sharpened the house on the left, but I think the light played a part in this as the shadows made it stand out even straight from the camera.

Thanks for the explanation, Ian.

What I forgot to mention before was the cloud formation - the striking diagonal formation which adds to the perspective effect. Did you sit and wait for this or was it just 'serendipity' !

Best regards

Hi Peter
I just came across this view on a walk. The cloud formation was just as you say 'serendipity'. I think what might have helped was the fact that I used a Sigma wide angle lens 10-20mm. I find this lens creates beautiful perspective in the sky. Hope this helps and thanks for the interest!
Best wishes
Ian
