Photographer's Note

While the rest of Britain and most of Western Europe seems to be basking in a heatwave with record temperatures and blazing sunshine, the West of Scotland is buried in low cloud, mist and rain.

This was taken late yesterday afternoon in New Lanark looking toward the Falls of Clyde (Dundaff Linn) and the Old Dye Works. The row of houses on the left is Caithness Row, built by Robert Owen at the beginning of the 19th Century to accommodate workers in his cotton mills here.

The weather was dull, wet and drizzly, the clouds enveloping the trees. It was, however, still warm for this time of year but still a bit different from the sights of hot sunny beaches in England!

Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE9.
