This old railway viaduct crosses over the River Tweed near Melrose in the Scottish Borders. I took it on Friday morning after I'd visited my favourite book shop, Mainstreet Trading in St Boswells. Believe me it was a day for wearing tweed, that famous old cloth which takes its name from the river, which for some of its length is the border between England and scotland, although not where I took this photo. It was minus 5 or so and the wind was biting.
While I took this picture I chatted with a man who was about to go fishing. I dare say he thought my standing taking photos in the cold was about as daft as i thought it was for him to go fishing!
Mostly I write books and other things that people pay me for. What I'd like to do is to take more photographs. Ideally I'd like to try combining the two at some point in the future. . .
