The view to march wood in a torrential downpour one August evening at St Mary’s Loch in the lovely scottish borders. The orange mark known simply as ‘L’ and used for the sailing clubs weekly dinghy races has never looked cleaner…

The southern upland way a longdistance walk from coast to coast across scotland follows the shoreline to Tibbies Shiels Inn at the end of the 2 mile long loch…

Thanks so much for looking

    Good eye, Maggie! I love this shot. Many possible stories one could dream up about this almost other-worldly view. Beautifully composed, too.

    Ah Tibbie she was a character indeed. Sir Walter Scott & Rabbie Burns were regular visitors if I’m not mistaken. I could be mistaken but I’m reasonably sure I’m correct. If you go into the Tibbie Shiels Inn you can see a photograph of the Grey Mares Tail when it froze up in the 1980’s.
    Oh by the way Dinghy, cracking shot!! Looks like a selective colouring shot but I know its not. Its another ‘Untouched’ I can tell!! XX

  • thanks robin you’re the Oracle !! on all things! including no sc.. rather an impromptu one provided by mother nature…
