Native Scots will recognize the title...

Some wonderful formal gardens, only now getting to most of the macros. This one really struck me as unusual. Does anyone know what it is?

I don't know but it makes a beautiful photograph. I especially like the close transitions between in-focus and OOF areas. Unusual red tones also ...a great shot!

We listened to this quite a few times over the course of a few weeks. I had several Corries cassettes back in the day and put them on my iPod for the trip. It created the perfect backdrop for the drive. Thanks kerrowdown! I knew you'd recognize the title.

I just assumed yours was a typo. A really serious typo.
