Photographer's Note

This was taken at the same time as my last picture, in June of this year, at the Lanark "Lanimer Day" procession through the town, a tradition which has been going on in Lanark for over 800 years. The whole event is based about the mediaeval tradition of each year checking the boundaries of the town, the boundaries being marked by a series of "march stones". Each year a "Lord Cornet" is elected and leads the procession through the town, as also is a "Lanimer Queen" whose crowning forms a major part of the celebrations.

This lady in the procession appears to be enjoying herself as do the onlookers, many of whom (including myself) were armed with cameras.

Actually, I've just realised that Scottish Television have uploaded a YouTube video of this year's procession which you can see here.

Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE9.
