Peebles Highland Games - dancing and swinging
Rehearsals, before the big moment. Must be difficult to get the footwork right on that tussocky grass.
Even if it's not your turn, you can still dance.
And then there's the swinging of the hammer.
And if that palls, there's always the traditional Scottish sport of crossing a bridge by the underneath.
Photos taken by my daughter at Peebles Highland Games a couple of weekends ago. Already these summery scenes seem far in the past. Autumn is here.
