Apologies for the 10 day gap in my posting record. I was off in Scotland and traveling without a laptop. While I could have posted from my iPad, it’s a rather more involved and time-consuming process so I decided to just take a blog vacation too.
I haven’t had time to sift through the pictures from the trip yet but here’s one I processed in Lightroom CC on the iPad while I was there. This sculpture is of William Wallace, 13th century Scottish freedom fighter and local hero in my home town of Lanark from where he started his rebellion against the English invaders, the First War of Scottish Independence. Historians aren’t sure where Wallace was brought up but it’s pretty clear he wasn’t born in Lanark. It is clear, however, that the first act of the rebellion was the killing of the English Sheriff of Lanark in 1297.
This particular sculpture forms the centerpiece of the new rose garden in Castlebank Park, Lanark.
For the technically inclined...
