Moffat Valley; the photo was taken from the path leading up to the Grey Mare’s Tail Waterfall which is 10 miles north east of Moffat on the A708, using a Nikon D200 and 18-200mm VR lens fitted with a clear UV filter. The camera was on a tripod, (both the tripod and camera were level, the tripod by means of the built in spirit level, and the camera had a horse-shoe spirit level attached) the photo was taken at 09:47hrs.
The image size was altered in Photoshop and then saved for the web at a quality setting of 60, to reduce the file size
The valley was scoured out by glaciers during the last ice age; the head of the valley is at Dobb's Linn, famous for its very early fossils. The valley opens up below and a car park at the bottom of the Grey Mare's Tail has information panels and maps.
