Falls of Clyde at New Lanark, Scotland on a winter morning

Looking towards the Falls of Clyde at New Lanark on a mid December morning. The sun just rising above the trees catching the mist and spray from the waterfall.

New Lanark was built around the water-driven cotton mills in the village in the eighteenth century and was based on its founder, David Dale’s vision of Utopian Socialism.  Dale’s vision was based on improving the working and living conditions of mill workers and their families and the founding of New Lanark marked a radical approach to both industrial practice and town planning.

The former mill buildings have been renovated and converted into shops, a visitor centre and hotel.
