Hi John.

A scene I can remember as a lad here in the Uk, the terrain is just the same as here. I like the layers of greenery banked up and the track as it leads us away, very calming image too. Tfs

Love the green tones in this picture, John!

Great details and well management of light and exposure with superb sharpness and clarity.
The colors are natural and a lovely view has been shown with a wonderful sky.
Good job!
