Roof Terrace, Scottish National Gallery

9 Nov

Edinburgh is a fantastic city for views, but I think the roof terrace at the National Museum of Scotland offers a unique opportunity to see the city at roof-top height.  Most of the time, when you look out at a view of Edinburgh, you are looking down at the city, here you are looking across the chimney pots and towards the spires.  It is simply beautiful.  The roof terrace is not exactly easy to find however, so you really have to be searching for it.  It makes a fun game though.  First one to the roof terrace wins!


View from Arthur’s Seat on a Rainy Day

2 Jun

Whilst these may not have been the most pleasant conditions in which to climb Arthur’s Seat it certainly did provide some atmospheric views.  Edinburgh Castle looked very mysterious and the Cockenzie Power Station rather eerie.

Happy New Year!

A little belated I know, but I am now back in Edinburgh after a little Christmas hiatus.  I am very excited about getting back into the swing of things in Edinburgh, getting some great shots of the city, exploring more cafés and of course eating cake.  Yum.  Here is a snap taken from the Castle in Edinburgh, beautiful wintry weather.  I’m afraid I didn’t review this cafe, having paid the earth to get into the Castle I rather objected to spending even more once inside.  Sorry about that.

Another little piece of news: one of my photos made it into the COLLECTIVE 5!  Can you guess which one?

I hope you guys all had a wonderful Christmas and have a great 2011.
