Caught ‘up the sware’ (a local viewpoint) at dawn yesterday ( 23/9/08) as the sun rose over the tweed valley just outside Peebles, scottish borders. An especially heartwarming sight after the wet grey summer we’ve had … and it’s straight from my Nikon 4800 coolpix compact camera, untouched.


See also mist in the valley taken at the same time


and also front row seat

cheers all

  • oooh cyril thanks ! this one was especially wonderful as we have only seen the sun a few times in the last couple of months – it has been a very grey summer…;( …but when we do get these lovely skies there is nowhere nicer on earth!!! and the mist lying in the valley made it even more special!
