Strathpeffer

We took a coaching holiday to Scotland in 2004 and stayed at Strathpeffer, not far from Dingwall and Inverness.

On the saturday the local Highland Games were on so we walked out to it using local footpaths rather than the main road, much more civilised.

This was the view towards the town on our way back with the wooded hills in the background forming a very pleasant backdrop.

Beautiful image Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your kind comment, I guess this a bit different to parts of Australia.
Lovely landscape Brian. I'm sure we had a picture frame just like this once upon a time!
Brian Walbey: Thanks for liking my picture Bill, as for the frame, I made it out of my own head, as my Dad would have said!
Gorgeous! Nice frame makes it stand out beautifully.
Brian Walbey: Thanks mary, I did wonder if the frame overpowered the picture a bit but others seem to like it as well.

A lovely image, and the frame goes very nicely too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, I'm now convinced the frame suits the picture, I wasn't too sure at first, but your not the first to say it is o.k.
Beautiful and bright pastoral composition Brian. I like your border!
Brian Walbey: Several people have liked the border as well as the picture Richard, thanks for your comment.

A beautiful pastoral scene. I'm sure Walking would have been quicker in any case than taking the car.
Brian Walbey: I'm not the world's best walker Alan, but on this day the walk was very pleasant both to and from the Highland Games field.

Nice view Brian, I love those colours in it, als the shades of green.
( I have been too busy to visit you everyday, monday will post again)
Brian Walbey: Your right Astrid, there is quite a lot of different shades of green in this picture, but isn't that just what nature gives us.
