This is a striking image of what I take to be an Irish landscape. I like the picture set against a black background which both complements the colors and enhances the quality of the light playing across the slopes. I had the feeling of sitting on a hillside and painting this idyllic looking setting with the cottage serving as the anchor for the picture.

Wow, a scene that exclaims "dingles!" Dylan Thomas was from Wales but how different can it be from Ireland? Beautiful, beautiful scene and treatment. A dingle, of course, is a wooded valley.

from the first stanza of Fern Hill:

Now as I was young and easy under the apple boughs
About the lilting house and happy as the grass was green,
The night above the dingle starry,
Time let me hail and climb
Golden in the heydays of his eyes,

It seems slightly different from our landscape in the valley and elsewhere...maybe more rolling hills? Nice shot, Ernest.;-)

WOW! Bet thing I've seen from you. The lines of the rolling hills and trees, with the
home nestled among them is classically candy for the eye.
