I've always liked the British red letterboxes, phone boxes and doubledecker buses (no, not the new ones but the old ones, obviously), and combining them with a nice background was something I'd been looking for, when during the Pitlochry Meet Pete, Ian, Robbie and I drove past this one. I couldn't resist and had to shoot it, although there was a serious lack of nice light. So I decided to use my on-board flash to highlight the letterbox, using my 10mm lens to stand close enough for it to have an effect.
Not the most spectacular photo I've ever taken, but I do still quite like it.
