Still on the way to Scar house reservoir when I saw this.
It got me thinking...
Strange things gates, they provide an access to what is kept within and an exit to what is left outside.
I wonder if a true paradise can be that clearly defined...
Perhaps I need a sun hat ;)

Please don`t put up a sunhat. You make beautiful pic`s without it. Like this very much.. can`t see way exactly. The mood is just right
Very good composition also

Another quite pleasant one from your countryside strolls, Stephen. A simple but appeealing framing with this gate and stone wall traversing the lush greenery, and the polarizer also worked pretty darn well to give definition to the colors and patterns of the sky in particular.

Thanks for sharing one of the most pleasing landscape photos that I have come across recently. Gates can be funny things, depending on which side you are in. Take a few more strolls and bring back more such images.

Great image Stephen, the colours and composition are fantastic. I'm surprised it hasn't got more points, it's going into my favourites.

Lovely gate, Stephen.
The FG is very interesting and full of details, and the sky is fantastic - nice cloud pattern!
When opening a gate to enter another field, I alway feel like gates are doors to another world!

Great thoughts about gates - both entry and prevention, depending on your point of view! I like the shot very much too, with the gate and fence standing in stark, graphic terms against the soft sky and fields. Great contrast, which ties in with your comment!

Well seen subject, and nicely done all round. Vey satisfying the way the lines of the gate work with the overall compo.
