A bridge over the River Nith at Thornhill
A bridge over the River Nith at Thornhill
The last rays of a low winter sun in late January are striking this red sandstone bridge over the River Nith at Holmhill. A dipper flew upstream as I approached the river bank, and as I was about to leave, a kingfisher flew downstream (from left to right in the photo) beautifully highlighted by the late afternoon sun. Iím afraid the shadow was unavoidable.
