Photographer's Note

In the woods of the Traquair House estate on a recent TE meeting in Peebles.
It had been raining hard all morning, but in the early afternoon it stopped for a while, so a couple of us (John Cannon, aka Tyro, and myself) took a paddle through the grounds of the house. We found this line of yew trees, which looked as though they'd been planted to form an avenue, but which had been abandoned for many years. Luckily for me, John had his tripod with him, so I borrowed it to make this photograph, just as a shaft of sunlight broke through for a few seconds. John has similar images I know, and as it was his tripod, I said I wouldn't post mine, but he insisted it wasn't a problem (isn't he nice?), so I took him at his word! It was pretty dark in there. 15 sec. shutter speed @ ISO 100, f/16
