Bagpiper, Scotland

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel Photos

While on a 20-day tour through England, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland, one of my favorite pictures out of the 1,500 I had taken was this one. There was a bagpiper at the tourist pull-off area playing for tips. When I showed this picture to my family, they said it looked like the piper was playing to the mountains, and that's how we like to think of it.
