Photographer's Note

Each year the racecourse at Lanark hosts the Lanark Mediaeval Festival. Battle re-enactments, stalls, music, entertainment and archery competitions are the order of the day. Well worth the visit if the weather holds out, which it did yesterday.

I didn't have the opportunity to talk to this fellow, but he is playing (and very melodiously too) a set of old bagpipes. The main bag of the pipes he holds under his left arm to control the air through the pipes but the bag is not filled by his breathing into a mouthpiece but rather by a set of bellows which he pumps with his right arm. Very impressive, as this must need a lot of skill and coordination.

Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE6.
