      the light is very similar to the NW i would imagine, makes those greens, GREEN!
      truly my pleasure, dear!

      yes.... one could not explain better than you did.....
      when we did our long trip in Alaska/Yukon and down south the 101, i said to my husband when we drove through Washington: see....here the light is similar to Scotland !

    Beautiful shot, Barbara! I have to say, I don't think this landscape would have quite the same effect if it were sunny/blue skies. I think the damp looking clouds suit it nicely. Is this still from Scotland?

      the shadow play of the clouds gives the landscape a special dimension... yes... its Scotland.... Isle of Skye which belongs to the inner Hebrides between Scotland and Ireland... the word Skye comes from the old gaelic word which means 'cloud' or 'fog'......
      thank you so so much for your kind words LeeAnne.... very appreciative.... :-))
