Beautiful as usual. Your eye is amazing. I love the fact that it is B & W, I think you see more depth in the picture you are not so distracted by the color.

Fantastic composition! Even the clouds, the rock on the left, the fence, the highlights and shadows work perfectly to balance out the whole image

What a great line! That fence is wonderful. And the cloud in the little wedge near the top left corner is perfect.

Great composition. Like the framing. The fence captures the eye, taking it through the scene. The clouds help to balance the image. Good work Ian

Hm, it looks like it was pretty high judging by those clouds...
The fence is great. I love the line of it pulling the eye through the photo but also the look of it - all askew and almost falling down...very cool photo.
