Glorious image! It might be a slight optical illusion but it does appear to have a slight slant to the right?

Best wishes, Kris.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Great shot, I like this one. However I agree with Womble its an optical conclusion the three trees look vertical I thinks its the slant of the wall along with the rolling hill side that foxes the eye, regards Ron

Hey Malcom, Have had a few slanted horizons myself but have now learnt to notice them before uploading. Anyway I really like this shot.
