The James Scott Memorial Fountain on Belle Isle in Detroit Michigan..
Quite the controversial character, Mr Scott only got this fountain because part of the condition of him donating his estate to the city upon his death was that they build the fountain in his honor and a life sized statue of him as well. Done and done...
the mist/cloud kept blowing through and completely covering the whole view! strange evening.
Been sussing out this spot for a while and finally found the comp as its quite a bit lower than the classic stop the car and shoot location. Sadly most of the snow we had has gone but a light dusting still on the hills.
Again very tricky lighting with the sky going full pelt and the light on the water and then dark in the middle. Two exposures blended manually to hopefully get the best of both. Going to clone out the branch on the left as its bugging me a bit..
Will revisit this spot on a summers day with the light from behind and some nice fluffy clouds as I think will be the perfect lighting.
Got a mono that will post later.
Here is Scott's website if anyone might want to hire him. He is an excellent model.

The evening we arrived at the charming, little town of Scotts Head, we were graced with a simple and calm ending to the day. We were taken off guard by the dense fog which rooted itself along the tree line - taking shelter from the slight breeze, amongst the bush and shrubs. We explored the new town, and made ourselves familiar with the headland, and natural beauty, while under the glow of the beaming shades of orange and yellow.
The pageantry of the perfunctory pavement parade was perilusly and prematurely paralyized. The gregarious gathering guffawed as gales gathered. Frederick Folly's fall foilage fiend flew fifty five feet. Dan Dobson, darling descendent of Daryl and Darla Dobson, doubted the degree of damage done. Serendipity saved the splendor as seventy six sailors on sabbatical spontaneously sang songs that some say stave off sea storms.

I think that all the red on the hillside is poison oak. The barn peeking out from the foot of the hill is on Swanton Road.
The Scott Monument in Edinburgh under a particularly angry (and orange filtered) sky.
The Scott Monument is a Victorian Gothic monument to Scottish author Sir Walter Scott . It stands in Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh.
The tower is 61m high, and has a series of viewing decks reached by a series of narrow spiral staircases giving panoramic views of central Edinburgh and its surroundings. The highest viewing deck is reached by a total of 287 steps. It is built from Binny sandstone quarried in nearby Ecclesmachan.
Thanx Skeletal Mess, excellent teaxtures.
Scott's View refers to a viewpoint in the Scottish Borders, overlooking the valley of the River Tweed; the view is dominated by the three peaks of Eildon Hill which is reputed to be one of the favourite views of Sir Walter Scott

Scotts Road is a road in Singapore. It is located in the Orchard Planning Area, within the Central Area in Singapore's central business district.
The name comes from the fact, that it was home to the largest community of Scottish expatriates living in the colony before Singapore's independence.

Its now called Scott’s View as Walter Scott would regularly stop here on his ride home.
It's on the way to Dryburgh Abbey if you are visiting the chin of ruined abbeys in the area. It is a lovely spot a a nice place to have a little snack there are some benches there.
It is said that on the way to his burial at Drybugh his horse, which was pulling his coffin, stopped at this location all on its own for on final look.

Sir Walter Scott 1771-1832 was the premier Scottish man of letters during the first quarter of the nineteenth century. He transformed his interest in the Scottish oral traditions into poems and novels which captured the popular imagination. William Macready played the role of Scott's hero Rob Roy in a musical adaptation by I. Pocock in 1818.
Scott's portrait and home at Abbotsford are also illustrated on the screen as well (perhaps) as other not yet identified images.

First attempt at PMG pixel art; I was inspired by Lpg-7's Pokemon pixel art, so I wanted to do a pixel art piece too. This probably took like around 5 hours to finish? Something like that. I started over about halfway through because of grouping error frustration, haha.
Big fan of Scott Pilgrim, both the comics and the movie. This pixel art was derived from sprites used in the SP video game.
Scott's View refers to a viewpoint in the Scottish Borders, overlooking the valley of the River Tweed, which is reputed to be one of the favourite views of Sir Walter Scott.
The viewpoint can be located directly from a minor road leading south from Earlston just off the A68 and by travelling north from the village of St. Boswells up the slope of Bemersyde Hill. The view is around 3 miles east of Melrose. The view is to the west, and is dominated by the three peaks of Eildon Hill. To the south west the view is extensive and open, taking in rolling farmland beyond the village of Newtown St Boswells. Immediately below the viewer is a meander of the Tweed itself. Often a fly fisherman can be seen fishing the river. To the north west the viewer looks along the Tweed valley to Melrose. Towards the north-west the viewer can see the Black Hill, a Marilyn near Earlston.
Immediately below the view point, on the cliffs above the River Tweed, is one of the few remaining fragments of semi-natural woodland in the area. The oak trees that remain are the descendants of trees used to supply wood for the manufacture of coffins in the area.
According to a popular story, Sir Walter Scott stopped at this point so often on the way to his home at Abbotsford, that his horses would halt without command. After his death in 1832, his funeral cortège passed this way en route to his burial at Dryburgh Abbey, and his horses stopped at his favourite view to allow their master a last look at the Borders landscape. In fact, although the funeral procession did pass this way, the halt was due to 'some accident'.

The former Scott Township #7 one room schoolhouse, located in Floyd County, Iowa. It's always a treat to find these old one-roomers that are still standing.
I went back to Scott's Run, concentrating on details this time. And experimented with a new (to me) contrast technique.

The fall colors weren't at their peak in most places, but they were close on the shore of Scotts Run Lake in French Creek State Park, Berks County, Pennsylvania. As I waited about 20 min. for the sun to rise enough so that there were no distracting shadows on the colorful west shore, the fisherman (still in the shade) moved their boat into an even better position so that I could get even more reflected color in the frame.

Good-looking and muscular American actor Gordon Scott (1926–2007) is best known as the eleventh Tarzan. He portrayed Tarzan in five films from 1955 to 1960. Then Scott moved to Italy, where he became a popular star of the Peplum film genre, the sword-and-sandal epics. As the Peplum faded, Scott starred in Spaghetti Westerns and Eurospy films.
Gordon Scott was born Gordon Merrill Werschkul in Portland, Oregon, in 1926. He was one of nine children of advertising man Stanley Werschkul and his wife Alice. Scott was raised in Oregon and studied Physical Education at the University of Oregon for one semester. Upon leaving school, he joined the U.S. Army in 1944. He served as a drill sergeant and military policeman, and specialized in close order drill, judo and hand-to-hand combat. After his honorable discharge in 1947 he took on a variety of jobs, including fireman, cowboy, and farm-machinery salesman. In 1953 he was working as a lifeguard at the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas when he was spotted by Hollywood agents, Ed and Walter Mayers. They were impressed by his handsome features, muscular physique, and imposing height. Scott then beat out 200 contestants to replace Lex Barker as Edgar Rice Burroughs' famous jungle hero Tarzan. Film producer Sol Lesser offered him a 7 year contract, a loin cloth and a new last name. Reportedly, ‘Werschkul’ sounded too much like ‘Weissmuller’. So as Gordon Scott, he debuted in the low-budget Tarzan’s Hidden Jungle (Harold D. Schuster, 1955). It led to a romance with co-star Vera Miles, who became his wife in 1956. They divorced in 1959. Tarzan’s Hidden Jungle was followed by Tarzan and the Lost Safari (H. Bruce Humberstone, 1957), the first Tarzan film in colour. It was filmed in Nairobi, British East Africa. In his early Tarzan films, Scott played the character as unworldly and inarticulate, in the mold of Johnny Weissmuller. In 1958, Sol Lesser sold Scott's contract to Sy Weintraub. The new producer took his star to Paramount Pictures and, fueled by bigger production budgets, made two of the most successful Tarzan films, Tarzan's Greatest Adventure (John Guillermin, 1959) with Anthony Quayle and Sean Connery, and Tarzan the Magnificent (Robert Day, 1960) with Jock Mahoney. In these later films, Scott played a Tarzan who was educated and spoke perfect English, as in the original Edgar Rice Burroughs novels. Gordon Scott was the only actor to play Tarzan in both styles.
Fearing he would become typecast as Tarzan, Gordon Scott moved to Italy. There he became a popular star of the Peplum genre, the sword-and-sandal epics featuring handsome bodybuilders as various characters from Greek and Roman myth. Scott was an old training buddy of Hercules star Steve Reeves. Reeves had agreed to star in the Sergio Leone-penned saga Romolo e Remo/Duel of the Titans (Sergio Corbucci, 1961) about the two brothers of Roman Mythology, who founded Rome. The producer wanted Reeves to play both Romulus and Remus, but Reeves objected that the film would be more effective with another actor in the role of Remus. He recommended Gordon Scott, and the film co-starred Virna Lisi, Laura Solari, Massimo Girotti and Jacques Sernas. Scott was given the highest salary he had earned thus far for taking the role. Next followed Maciste alla corte del Gran Khan/Maciste at the Court of the Great Khan (Riccardo Freda, 1961), which reused the sets, extras and Yoko Tani as a princess from Marco Polo (Piero Pierotti, Hugo Fregonese, 1961) and Freda's I mongoli/The Mongols (André De Toth, Leopoldo Savona, Riccardo Freda, 1961). He played Julius Caesar opposite Pascale Petit as Cleopatra in the historical drama Una regina per Cesare/A Queen for Caesar (Piero Pierotti, Victor Tourjansky, 1962) set in Egypt in 48 BC. Unlike other films about Caesar and Cleopatra, this film focuses entirely on the dynastic struggle within Egypt leading up to the arrival of Caesar, and in fact, we only see him in the closing scene of the film when he arrives at The Ptolemaic Palace in Alexandria. 20th Century Fox bought the rights for the film to keep it out of release lest it compete with their own Cleopatra, featuring Elizabeth Taylor. Scott also played Hercules in a couple of international co-productions during the mid-1960s.
As the Peplum genre faded, Gordon Scott starred in other genre films. His first Spaghetti Western was Buffalo Bill, l'eroe del far west/Buffalo Bill, Hero of the Far West (Mario Costa, 1964) with Jan Hendriks. He also starred in the Eurospy film Il Raggio infernale/Danger!! Death Ray (Gianfranco Baldanello, 1967), released at a time when the James Bond films, and spy films in general, were very popular internationally. His early military combat and martial arts training made it possible for him to do many of his own stunts. His final film appearance was in the Spaghetti Western Gli uomini dal passo pesante/The Tramplers (Albert Band, Mario Sequi, 1966-1968) with Joseph Cotten and Franco Nero. He left Italy, and never made another film. He was trailed by a reputation as a ladies' man who seldom paid his bills, according to a 1987 article in the Toronto Star. For the last two decades of his life, Scott was a popular guest at film conventions and autograph shows and sold knives. In 2007, Gordon Scott died, aged 80, in Baltimore, Maryland, of lingering complications from multiple heart surgeries earlier in the year. Adam Bernstein in his obituary in The Washington Post: “He lived with a series of obliging friends and ‘Tarzan’ fans, most recently in Baltimore. He had a troubled marriage to Miles, who apparently was under the impression that she was his first wife. She was his second or third, by varying accounts. He was seldom in contact with his surviving family, which includes a brother and two sisters. He had a son with Miles, and it's unclear how many other children he might have had. He was estranged from nearly everyone.” Scott was married three times. His first marriage was with Janice Mae Wynkoop, of Oakland, California. They met when he was a lifeguard at Lake Temescal, located in Oakland, California. The couple married in Reno, Nevada, in 1948, and had one child, Karen Judith Werschkul (1948), before divorcing in 1949. His second marriage was to a woman he met while they were both working at the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas. Gordon as a lifeguard and his wife as a PBX operator. They soon married and had a son, Eric, but the marriage ended once Gordon's acting career took off. With Vera Miles, he had one son, Michael, (1957).
