bench stop by dinghysailor1

For Jan Timmons whose wonderful forum thread here has been the most enjoyable and thought provoking fun…

A wonderfully sited bench on the shore of st mary’s loch, enjoyed by the club sailors there and a resting spot for visitors and hikers along scotlands southern upland way. Running runs from coast to coast this bit of the path goes along the lochside between historic Traquair and the Tibbie Shiels inn.. both places with fascinating history…

Taken 5/6/09 with a witness to attest this is scotland and the sky really was this colour… !! … tho it was chilly enough for the capsizing sailors there…LOL.. :))

Nikon D60
Nikkor lens VR 18-200
UV filter
Tripod and selftimer!!!


Cheers and thanks heaps for looking

    Now you’re just showing off because you have benches for your great landscapes and I don’t. Haven’t purchased that inflatable couch you found for me yet – could you find one in brown?

    Beautiful shot, Maggie. Tripod and all! I’m impressed with the action shot, too.

  • oops jan meant to dedicate and offer it for your travels with a bench…lol … but not sure how small this packs down…LOL… and was being a bit of a poser with the droopy tripod … hope to get fixed up soon ..teehee…
