<p>The earth dam (the largest in Scotland) at Megget reservoir  on a clear sunny morning, always looking for unusual angles &amp; trying to make a picture on a morning with a featureless sky &amp; harsh light.<br />

<p>St Mary's Abbey, Melrose is a partly ruined monastery of the Cistercian order in Melrose, Roxburghshire, in the Scottish Borders. It was founded in 1136 by Cistercian monks on the request of King David I of Scotland, and was the chief house of that order in the country until the Reformation. It was headed by the Abbot or Commendator of Melrose. Today the abbey is maintained by Historic Scotland.<br />
Alexander II and other Scottish kings and nobles are buried at the abbey. A lead container believed to hold the embalmed heart of Robert the Bruce was found in 1921 below the Chapter House site; it was found again in a 1998 excavation. This was documented in records of his death. The rest of his body is buried in Dunfermline Abbey.<br />
The abbey is known for its many carved decorative details, including likenesses of saints, dragons, gargoyles and plants. On one of the abbey's stairways is an inscription by John Morow, a master mason, which says, Be halde to ye hende (&quot;Keep in mind, the end, your salvation&quot;). This has become the motto of the town of Melrose.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/26060087@N02/">Don Tiffney</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>I was drawn to these amazing rib patterns cut into the sandstone harbour wall at Cove, so clean cut the tide providing the energy &amp; the chain cutting the stone very neatly. <br />

<p>The view from the patio at &quot;Eagles Nest&quot; the cottage I stayed at on my recent borders sortie, at the end of a long Landrover track half way up a hill, great location. A six vertical frame stitch.<br />
