I've just returned from photographing this years Guid Nychburris (Good Neighbours) Day ride out in Dumfries. Quite an eventful day - the rain could have been a spoiler, but didn't dampen anyone's spirits and everyone had a great time, with a huge turnout and I dug deep to get some new views of the event.
Based on previous year's experience I abandoned trying to follow the riders by car (too much traffic), instead opting to cover the ground on foot - which ultimately ended up with me in the back of a police car…the local D&G constabulary took pity on me and offered me a lift around part of the route - thanks guys!
Covering new ground really paid off and I'm very pleased with the results. Please have a look at the full gallery of photographs available to order here. Congratulations to Scott Cowan and Lesley Thomson (cornet and cornet's lass) and to the Dumfries Cornet's Club for organising such a great event in challenging conditions.
