Tinto Hill is the highest hill in Lanarkshire at 2,320 feet. This view of it, looking westward. was taken from near to the little village of Quothquan, a name apparently meaning "common ground". In the foreground, a newly seeded field springs into life and the more distant fields of grass are bright and verdant as a result of the warm sunny weather we have been having recently in Scotland.

Beautiful and pleasant-looking landscape!
Truly attractive picture!
Sharpness, exposure, chosen pov, dof, colors, horizontal format, contrasts and simple composition are all excellent!

Hello John, I like the emerging crop,not too many missing rows here!The verdant colours are a sure sign that Spring is well and truly here.
I like the field patterns which give the shot interest and depth.
Nice seasonal capture.
Best wishes Les.
