Very much a "nothing special" picture, this was taken two weeks ago during the course of an idyllic eight mile circular walk in the Scottish Borders from Peebles along the banks of the River Tweed to Lyne Station. It was a beautiful warm spring day, the birds were singing and wild flowers showing their pretty heads everywhere.

Here we were passing Barns Tower, a small but imposing stone built tower with thick walls and tiny windows built in the last quarter of the 16th century and having undergone some extensive restoration in the late 18th century.

If you're interested, the tower has recently been modernised internally and can be rented for self-catering holiday accommodation as you can read here.

ISO 400, 1/1000 sec at f/8, focal length 22mm.
