Highland roadside 7

  1. Not immediately beautiful (I always associate those twigs with waste land) there are wonderful ingredients to this and it is the juxtaposition and layout that goes to make it successful.

    The barley (oats?) ripples nicely with shades of green in the crop but it is the deeper green of the leaves in the centre, subtly lit by mild sunlight, that is the jam in the sandwich. The lower half of the trees looks fine and it is strange how the tops both change colour and become darker.

  2. “Not immediately beautiful”

    To me it was, and still is.

  3. looking out from the road, seeing a fence and layers. Some richer colours from your area of the world.

  4. There is a richness in the crop which is accentuated by the starkness and nakedness of the bushes.

    I also like the colour division in the image, helped by the change in colour in the bushes.

  5. The strong whites of the lower branches draw me in. The upper branches are like stags’ antlers which gives me that sense of highlands.
    The over-laying of the different colours adds a nice 3rd dimension.
    Lots to look at.
