Abbotsford Photo-walk

We’re now trying to have a monthly photo-walk around local sites. It is mainly aimed at the beginner members but it’s also good to have a blether and share ideas (without giving away secrets of course). There often isn’t time to chat for long on a Wednesday after meetings.

This month around ten members met at Abbotsford estate just outside Galashiels. Formerly the home of the world-famous author Sir Walter Scott. Writer of Waverly, Rob Roy, Ivanhoe and many others. The estate is free to wander around although you have to pay to visit the house and walled gardens. It is well worth making the time to visit the house and gardens.

I’d set a side task to capture the most creative image of Abbotsford House however, no one was restricted to just that as it was a good opportunity to capture the last of the autumn colours.

We’ve got some cracking images back on our Facebook page here are just a few on this page.
