Photographer's Note

On days such as today when the weather is dark and wet, it is nice to look back at some old pictures. This one is of one of my favourite haunts, the Talla Reservoir, near Tweedsmuir in the Scottish Borders, here looking down upon it from the road which rises beyond the reservoir to pass into the hills and onward to the Megget Reservoir and St. Mary's Loch.

And what was special about this particular day in late January was that I was accompanied here by Richard who had come to visit us for a few days. The day was a bit dark, gloomy and wet but some light snow had recently fallen on some of the hilltops.

You can see from where this picture was taken if you click on Map:view. You can also look at this map and, if you drag the little yellow man down to the red cross and pan around, you can see this view and also take a "virtual walk" along the road.
