The Edinburgh ferris wheel in motion

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

This is also from the archives, taken after new year 2014 as part of one of the Scavenger Hunts I used to do. This shows the wheel, the Star Flyer, back when it was on St Andrew's Square and the shadow of the Scott Monument.

An experiment in long exposure taken on what I recall being a rather cold day.

The statue of Greyfriars Bobby – Edinburgh

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Edinburgh is full of places which attract tourists like flies to sticky paper, but Greyfriars Bobby's statue has got to be one of the top 5 spots in the city. And apparently someone decided at one point that rubbing its nose would bring good fortune and as a result the council has to apply fresh coats of paints regularly, not to mention the damage it does to the metalwork in the long term.

Perthshire hills in Autumn

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

I thought I'd shared this panorama of the hills around Comrie before but apparently not, so here it is hopefully still at high resolution.

A small contribution to +Johnny Wills #joinindaily theme of "Beautiful Countryside" (living in Scotland I had quite a bit of choice in my collection for this theme :))
