Edinburgh Photo Trip

Nearing the end of our second full day in Edinburgh.Lots of sunshine and fluffy clouds.

Sunny spells and windy yesterday. Very wet when we arrived Friday so no pictures until yesterday. Started in coastal village of Cramond for views and boats then on to Victoria Street to meet friends (Bow Bar) and watched Mardi Gras jazz parade before heading off down Royal Mile to Holyrood Park and photos from the top of the crags over the city and Arthurs Seat (local hill). Then over to Calton Hill and Calton Cemetery before retiring to pub (Guild Ford, Cafe Royal and pub on Rose Street). Night shots of castle from the gardens below to finish the day.

Today we started back on Calton Hill as some of the shots work better in the morning. Then the castle from the gardens, this time in daylight. Then back to car and out to coast at Portobella and a few beach shots. Then in to Stockbridge for lunch with friends before walking along Wa(er of Leith to Dean village for some nice river shots and a weir.

Just writing this before joining friends for dinner in the local Indian.

Tomorrow if weather good we will go to Northumberland coast to see what pictures present themselves.before heading home.

So far looks like a good trip with 21 rolls exposed including some good ones. Watch this space for results.
