Stock Photography: Berwickshire
*Page under construction*
I have amassed a large collection of Stock Photography images which previously could be accessed via a link to Photographers Direct.com. This was a well-established website with well over one million images on record, supplied by thousands of photographers worldwide. However, in early 2019 the site folded without warning or explanation, I suspect as the result of a downturn in the Stock Photography market.As an alternative means of displaying my stock images, I am in the early stages of creating a series of thumbnail gallery pages featuring shots previously held by PD in addition to those included in the main posts. Due to the large number of JPEG files I have not attempted to re-keyword individual files as before but have grouped them under general headings so that they can be accessed via a general search. Larger categories will be sub-divided and some subjects may be duplicated on one or more pages.
The ruins of Dryburgh Abbey stand in a secluded woodland setting beside the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders. Sir Walter Scott and Field Marshall Earl Haig both lie buried here but the graveyard also contains many stones embossed with decorative lichen-covered figures which make ideal subjects for photography.
In 1786, the Earl of Buchan acquired the abbey ruins and took steps to protect the property from further decay. In addition, he was responsible for adding the large formal garden and an obelisk which commemorates the abbey`s foundation. A figure of James II is on one side with James I on the other.
