A few weeks ago I posted a similar photograph from the TE meeting held here last October. That was taken from the other side of the bridge and was in b/w. At the time I said that, despite my decision to post a monochrome version, the light at the time was really good. Here's the proof. Early evening sun, after a mostly rainy day, with the last clouds clearing to the East. And the River Tweed at full throttle.

Hi will, Beautiful landscape with great POV and composition. I like so much the warm colours applied on the bridge by the sun. The length of the bridge gives sense of depth too. Thank for sharing

I like the nice light here and the resulting warm colors on the stones and the greenery, in contrast with the rather dark waters and the threatening gray sky
A very pleasant picture well balanced in its compo
Best regards, have a nice WE

excellent the brilliant afternoon light as falling on the place making the scene even more effective.I like the way that the arch stone bridge and the upper part of the bell tower brings out the details of them and create perspective in the scene.

The light was really fantastic, as it sometimes is soon before or after a heavy shower when the sun competes with black clouds.The magnificent bridge leads my eyes along a diagonal towards the church and it is well balanced in the composition by the trees to the left. The colours are beautifully intense, and I don't think you had to saturate them very much, maybe not at all. The intensity seems very natural.

una bellissima luce colpisce il paesaggio, già molto bello, ma reso fantastico da questi raggi che scaldano l'ambiente.
Bella composizione, mi piace come hai posizionato il ponte e mi piace il cielo, con la parte scura a destra e quella più luminosa a sinistra.

hello Will, The light was not really good - it was marvelous. Amazing colours of the bridge and the beautiful church with this characteristic Scottish tower. And what a sky! Wonderful memories from the meeti ng.

Hi Will.I like such images where one can feel nature in motion, here from the clouds in the sky above and the shadows cast below, plus the rushing waters. In addition, this being England, one can always appreciate the patina of time left on rock and slate. beautiful light. Regards. Klaudio.

Very nice capture from Peebles.
Good pov and layout but the "mark" here is absolutely this wonderfull cloudy sky as background.
TFS and have a nice weekend

What a tranquil scene with natural colours and fine details. I like the point of view, which makes good use of the bridge to lead the eye into the town with the church overseeing the background. The light here is excellent giving a really nice feel to the photograph. Well done.

Ah, yes, I remeber that evening - just before we set off to the pub next to the church if my recollection is correct!
You have caught the evening light here beautifully as it casts lovely soft shadows on the bridge across the Tweed. The tower of the parish church is perfectly placed in the frame contributing to a fine composition.
Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

Nice view of the Scottish countryside. The light breaking through the dark clouds is excellent. It has lend wonderful colours and clarity to the already beautiful scene. Excellent detailing all over the frame as well. Thanks for sharing.

la luce che illumina il paesaggio è divina e con i suoi colori caldi si addice a perfezione a quanto ripreso.
Il colore caldo della pietra e la vegetazione risaltano in maniera straordinaria contro il cielo tempestoso donando alla composizione una magia particolare.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Hi Will, I like this beautiful photograph of this interesting lit with a beautiful sunburst, very well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, light and color composition. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and good Sunday.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
HimalAnda (10591) 2014-01-18 2:51
The point of view is well choosen and the light is beautiful.
Noel_Byrne (29235) 2014-01-18 5:58
That light is stunning, the kind that if I present for, makes me feel like a kid in a candy store when I have my camera with me. And what a find subject to be present at for this light display too, the fine old bridge, and the towering spire look wonderful, while the sky has two very distinct moods! Beautiful shot.
All the best
dekanski (4775) 2014-01-18 9:15
it's slightly too dark, especially because of the shadow of the bridge (I assume the cloud). The composition and sky are wonderful.
Royaldevon (36169) 2014-01-18 9:41
This was the evening before we arrived. Sadly we never saw Peebles in such a beautiful light!
You have chosen a fine angle, where the arches of the bridge make a leisurely approach to the church, nestling contentedly in the branches of the trees. The composition is pleasingly right-angular.
However, the most eye-catching aspect is the light. The whole scene is gilded with this warm, evening light.
My warm regards,

Nice scen with excellent lights. Congratulations for this photo.
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-01-18 22:21
Wonderful light Will, the unsettled weather has given the shot a particularly attractive look with a super sky. The colours are rich and details emphasised thanks to the light. The shot has a quiet dynamism as the river and clouds both infer movement and change. Nicely done. Warm regards Rosemary

Ciao Wlll, lovely composition with beautiful bridge and fantastic cathedral, superb sky, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
Waylim (25488) 2014-01-21 11:33
This is a very good shot, the low warm light illuminating the scenery with soft shadows, not too strong. In this case, those clouds adds to the drama in the sky, enhancing the composition of the shot. Excellent texture and details throughout, especially on the stone surface of the bridge.
annjackman (21674) 2014-01-21 23:21
When the sun shone the town and surrounding countryside were very lovely and your picture shows that beautifully. I like the warmly lit stonework very much and particularly the variety of colours underneath the arch of the bridge. You managed the evening light very well with detail throughout.
Kind Regards, Ann

I so regret that I have missed this POV. I guess we were quite close together in that second pub visited. The light is magnificent here with the dark clouds adding a very dramatic touch. I like the composition with the lovely church and the bridge and the vegetation along the river. But of course the light is a highlight :) Nice contrast of the threatening part of the sky with the blue part.
Beautiful picture full of nice mood,
Didi (60358) 2014-02-05 8:55
Hi Will my neighbour :)
Very nice picture with an interesting perspective of the bridge
Very good light ambiance
brianmcc (6219) 2014-02-08 4:35
this is a beautiful picture taken in stunning light which you have captured perfectly to create a very appealing image. i love this type of fleeting light that appears between the clouds and then disappears again just as quickly. the colours are wonderfully rich in quality and the light helps to show off the detailed brickwork of the bridge and clock tower.
adores (43903) 2014-02-08 17:05
I remember the other one in b&w, it's surely good, but I like this one also. The colours, the sunlight with such cloudy sky, the details in the shadow... I like the pov, the quality and the atmosphere. Good shot!
BennyV (15903) 2015-09-19 7:01
A dog called Pebbles led me to a place called Peebles...it's funny old world, isn't it? Classic composition for this great view, the threatening sky above spells either relief or bad luck (depending on where the wind comes from), but whichever, it was great for photography.
