Hill monkeys on Herman Law
Hill monkeys on Herman Law
About 7 or 8 military low flying photography enthusiasts had travelled from various locations in England, camped overnight by the A708 road at Kerrcleuch, then climbed up the northern slopes of Herman Law early next morning to be in position for any aircraft using the Selkirk to Moffat valley. I usually have this place to myself but it was interesting talking to them. These guys wait all day in the hope of something passing by but 2 to 3 hours is enough for me. Air crew refer to low flying photographers as ‘hill monkeys’ but I believe it is only US crews that use this term.
