First time using the Leica P40 scanner on my own to record a column from Elgin Cathedral that the Stone Conservation department had been working on in South Gyle. The column had been assembled incorrectly in the past, so the Stone Conservation team had rearranged the stone disks in the correct way before transporting the column back to Elgin. The capital was placed on top with a crane which is still partly visible in the scan snapshots.
