Day 52 - Edinburgh Castle

Today’s photo is a shot of Edinburgh Castle at sunrise.  I took this with my Fuji XF1 on the way to work.  The sunlight on the clouds was a wonderful deep orange colour and for the first time in days we had a bright blue sky this morning.  It is worth reading the wikipedia article on the castle here, archaeologists have confirmed that there have been humans on the site of the castle since the 2 century AD and there has been a royal castle on the rock (which is an extinct volcano) since the 12th century.  I have always loved Edinburgh Castle, even before I lived in Edinburgh.  I walk past the castle pretty much every day on the way to work and it really defines Edinburgh.
