STUNNING images by two photographers from the Borders have been selected to showcase Scotland’s past, writes Bob Burgess.
Their works will grace the 2014 Historic Scotland calendar after being chosen from a massive entry.
And the calendar’s proven popularity means their photographs will wing their way to ex-pats around the globe.
The super snappers entered a competition organised by the conservation body which invited photographers to submit pictures from any of the 345 sites under its care.
There were more than 3,700 entries and Nyree Mcfadyen from Galashiels and Dennis Laing from Jedburgh both enjoyed success.
Nyree’s shot of Tantalon Castle in East Lothian will feature on the February page, while Dun Carloway Broch on the Isle of Lewis taken by Dennis has been chosen for August.
Fiona Hyslop, Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs at Holyrood, commented: “It is wonderful that this competition attracted an amazing 2,750 entries, which is particularly appropriate in the Year of Creative Scotland.
“We are very lucky to have so many inspiring historic sites in Scotland. These photographs highlight the beauty and drama of our spectacular country.”
Although the pictures won’t appear until the 2014 edition, Dennis and Nyree’s images are on show in Stirling Castle until the end of January.
