Now that the dust has well and truly settled on the trip, this is a shot from Peebles, where I met some TE members for the first time.
It was late evening and I think this was the first time the sun had broken through that day, from memory. We all had a little walk along the banks of the Tweed looking for a photo opportunity. This one seemed like a nice postcard shot to remind me of Peebles (the high street runs parallel to the river just off to the left).
I'm stood on a bridge. to the left and behind my POV there is a pub just before the bridge. I had a pleasant few pints in there one afternoon with TE member Will Perrett! Very nice it was too!

A lovely capture of the river with super light and shadows. Great depth to the shot with river disappearing into the distance.

mi ha sorpreso vedere il tuo nome a fanco di un simile paesaggio anche perchŔ il tuo nome Ŕ spesso associato a strutture architettoniche moderne.
Una ottima ripresa nella quale composizione, colore, gestione della luce e nitidezza concorrono ad un risultato dei migliori.
Ciao e buona domenica

Looks like a great place for a pint, and how cool that the street runs alongside this lovely river. This whole scene has a fine fresh vibe, I can almost feel the wind on the bridge. The approaching clouds look very cool too.
Thanks as always

una bella differenza con le precedenti foto, ma non per questo meno bella.
Il paesaggio Ŕ fantastico, ma io non faccio testo, amo molto questi luoghi.
Ottima la profonditÓ, il fiume e gli alberi concorrono a formare una splendida prospettiva.
Bello il cielo e la presenza del campanile, completano l'opera due persone nel posto giusto, di cui una in rosso, non si pu˛ avere di meglio.

This is a another shot which brings back some lovely memories of our TE meeting in Peebles in late October. But, hee, hee, it also answers a question for me because I remember those two ladies walking along the footpath on the right bank of the river - they're in my shot here - and now I know who the suspicious looking guy on top of the bridge in my shot is too!
Funnily enough, I suspect that I might in fact be in this shot of yours, right down at bottom right!
Anyway, the light here was, for a few minutes at least, perfect and you have made the very most of that brief moment to capture a delightful photograph of the Tweed and Peebles beneath a gorgeous sky. The light and colours are wonderful, your composition excellent and the details and sharpness exquisite. The inclusion of the two colourfully dressed ladies walking on the right is a fine addition.
P.S. Just thought I'd let you know that I won the annual Nature photography competition at the club on Friday night and my red squirrel was best print of all the entries too. I thought I could just detect a few faint murmurs and grumbles from some of the longstanding dyed-in-the-wool members at the back. The judge was Sandy Cleland FRPS who also showed some of his own stunning photographs at the end of our meeting.

What a super scene of this river Tweed and surrounding countryside, with Peebles on the left bank.
The light colours and clarity are splendid.
Sounds like you had a great time, especially in the pub with Will.
macjake (53320) 2014-04-13 22:19
sounds like you may have been just as happy spending more time in the pub! haha
clouds make all the difference here, I wish I had clouds like this in all of my shots!
the exposure is spot on, wouldn't change a thing, especially to the left.
fine shot my friend.

And very nice this is too, in the postcardy way you describe, which is absolutely not your normal style! I see this is a crop: top or bottom removed, or a bit of each? And apart from darkening the sky a tad, I'm trying to work out what PP you've done here. Somehow it manages to look a bit painterly... But pleasant, and brings back pleasant memories.
