Pond life

Keen photographer John D Thomson captured this image of Straiton Pond earlier in the summer.

The pond, within a local nature reserve is an oasis lying only a short distance from the hustle and bustle of the city bypass and Straiton Retail Park.

We’d love to feature your photos of your favourite Midlothian scenes.
