Day 139 - A different perspective

Today’s photo is a shot of Edinburgh Castle taken from beneath the castle walls.  With something as iconic as Edinburgh Castle it can be difficult to find a new and different angle to photograph it from but I like the angle and perspective in this one.

Day 88 - Sunshine over the Castle

Today’s photo was taken with my Samsung Galaxy S3 Smartphone during my lunch break and is a shot of Edinburgh Castle from Princes Street.  As I shot directly into the sun I got a nice light flare effect above the castle and I like the silhouette of the Royal Scots Greys Monument (click here) in the foreground, standing tall.

Day 85 - Inverleith Park

Today’s photo is a long exposure shot taken in Inverleith Park.  I framed the shot so that the trees are in the foreground and you can see the castle in the distance.  The clouds were fairly fast moving and I like the effect created by the long exposure.  It also enabled me to capture the sensation of movement in the trees as they blew in the breeze.

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.
