Another one of the great shots you seem to have 'the eye' for Andrew. Could it be a little better perhaps straightend a little and the black mark in the bottom left cloning out?

It nice to see the the quarry ruins in a different light this time in contrast to the dark, green hill behind. Perceptive compo and truthfully rendered colours, Andrew.

Lovely shot Andrew, it appears that the building is about to fall from the hillside.

I agree!

Even with the landscape divided by "leaders"(using Nuri's words), Andrew was capable of maintaining the sharpness across the foreground.
How many times I come across to sceneries like this and forget to choose an suitable aperture ?!?
It reveals technique, Andrew!

Lovely composition, nice colours. It looks even better in enlarged view.

Thanks everyone for your kind and considered comments. I'm not sure about the sloping building, it's obviously in a right state, but Paul may well be right, although the foreground looks horizontal, the building may look better more vertical.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Great shot of a wonderful location Andrew.

It could be either the ground or the barracks which are not straight!!

You should have enough material for a photo book about south-west England and Wales now Andrew?

James Herriot's Yorkshire springs to mind! It's certainly worth visiting a Waterstones to see if the area has already been covered photographically.
