Completed in 1869 after eight years' construction, the 220 feet high Wallace Monument sits prominently on the Abbey Craig two miles north of the city of Stirling itself. It was from this prominent hilltop in 1297 that William Wallace watched the English army approach across Stirling Bridge before leading the Scots into the battle of the same name: and victory (see our Historical Timeline). A fitting, and striking, location for the national monument to a national hero.

Hello Bryan,a good PoV looking up the hill, it makes the tower look even more imposing.
The colours seem to set the mood, and the inclusion of the people walking up the path really enhances the shot.
I like the bare trees against the wintery sky.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Nice shot of the big man's monument, did you get a shot of his sword inside? I think I have one somewhere, I'll try and dig it out and post it. The monument looks great from this angle and you get a fantastic view from the top as it is built on the cliff edge - get's a bit windy up there. Great detail and nice moody look to this through the trees. Well done. TFS
A very sombre picture but made more interesting by the inclusion of the walkers Interesting composition but it looks a little soft Maybe you had a larger aperture because of the light and hence a shorter dof I dont know what your film speed was but a higher film speed could have meant a smaller aperture and a bigger dof
