Been here before...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...The Leaderfoot Viaduct built in 1865 for the Berwickshire Railway spans the River Tweed just outside Melrose. I always have a look here when in the area, the light was shining down into the valley just far enough to illuminate the span and the river, with a nice line of sheep for good measure.

A very good shot. Have you tried a panoramic crop, reducing the amount of sky?

A superbly executed celebration of verticals, horizontals and diagonals. Layer upon layer of pure quality.
