Looks a bit chilly up there. At least they put a roof over Lincoln's head. Nice angle.

That was a photo suitable in monochrome.

I always felt tha Scotland was cold, my brother lives outside Inverness; Scott looks as though he hasn't got used to the cold either.

Jane said...

Thanks everyone:) it was taken in March of 2007. Yes it is cold certainly in winter, get the odd day in summer when its warmer though.

John said...

Very nice shot!

Very nice statue, and, a good angle for capturing the light behind....

He looks quite sad - perhaps weighed down by the HUMONGOUS monumnet towering above him!! Monochrome quite becomes him.

Jane said...

LOL, thanks Kitty-yes he does look sad doesn't he.

Nice. The tones of the statue look almost solarized. Very interesting shot.
