Scott's View

Scott's View - Landscapes and Lochs
According to a popular story, Sir Walter Scott stopped at this point so often on the way to his home at Abbotsford, that his horses would halt without command. After his death in 1832, his funeral cortege passed this way en route to his burial at Dryburgh Abbey, and his horses stopped at his favourite view to allow their master a last look at the Borders landscape.

The Scottish Borders are a joy to behold at any time of the year, but in the Autumn months the landscape is transformed as the colours begin to change.

I used a very wide focal length to frame the meandering bend of the river and the distant Eildon Hills.

The sunrise itself wasn't too promising but I was treated to pockets of early morning mist rising from riverbank.
