    In this thread it's impossible to narrow it down to a fave/faves. What gorgeous countryside. The colours in #1 are spectacular (and all those curving lines of fences, tracks, and poles are interesting). Love the lighting in the last one.

    More, please. :D

    I really like #1, I like how the train tracks lead you through the photo. Did you use a tripod for these, or handheld?

    This Photo 1 here is quite appealing! I like all the soft curves both in the lines of the hills as well as the railway line.
    But Photo 2 is also really beautiful. Were you standing right in that stream when you took it?
    And hey, there's also Photo 3 - the clouds produce really nice shadows on the hills, and if you have never known the meaning of the word "rolling" before then you do after you have seen this photo! I think they so look like "rolling hills"!
    But can you really also SPEAK the place names? Or have you jotted them down into your travel diary and copy them now letter by letter (I would need to do that!)
    Photo 4 --- okaaaaaaaayyyyy :wink: (that is some serious hairstyle!) and
    Photo 5: ALL THOSE COLOURS! Wow. (Note that I am saying this while only a little part is green :greenpbl: ).

    Off to the next series!
    It must have been early spring when you were there?

    Given that I take took them all almost exactly 10 years ago, it is history already ;)

    Actually, I had the idea of going back there this year, just don't know when to squeeze it in :(



    One of my favourite images from this trip :)

    No, on a bridge ;)

    I can pronounce some, not all ;)

    April! And spring is always a bit later in Scotland than elsewhere ;)
    Also altitude plays a role of course
