Photographer's Note

Romana (romanaa) had commented that my last upload did not show quite enough of the surrounding hills, so now I am posting a photograph taken the same day last week but from higher up the little narrow road that leads from the Talla Reservoir to the higher Megget Reservoir.

In fact, you can see the location from where I took the picture if you look at Map:[view] but if you look here and drag the "yellow man" onto the roadway, you can look around the area and even go for a virtual drive along this little road. The road is single track, windy and steep (20%) so you have to be careful driving, especially if you meet someone else coming the other way.

In the picture you can see Talla Linnfoots farm buildings at the near end of the reservoir. My last picture was taken down by the waterside near there. You can see the steep road downhill on the left and to the right of the reservoir in the distance is the little road continuing to the village of Tweedsmuir.

Shot in RAW using a polarising filter and converted and edited in PSE6.

As always, all comments/critiques/advice are very welcome!
