Trip to Edinburgh, Scotland.

Had a recent trip to Edinburgh, Scotland. It was great to visit new territory, a breath of fresh air. With no specific compositions in mind, I had a good roam round.

I was interested in some dawn shoots so one morning climbed up Arthur's Seat for sunrise. The forecast wasn't too discouraging so went for it but the visibility from the top was not poor but limiting. Poor would be the wrong word to use if I can still pull away a photo worth keeping of the limited visibility. So I set-up my camera in aperture priority for a sharp aperture and the exposure required equalled three seconds long. That will do I thought since my tripod, remote release and mirror lock-up was in use only for my family companions to walk into my frame. I took an exposure anyway and like the result of the blurry animated figures below.

And from another morning walk on a more sunnier occasion I found myself at this view of Morningside Parish Church. With this photograph the clouds work well with the landscape. Notice the diagonal patterns.

I hope I achieved some original compositions from a likely heavily photographed city like Edinburgh. Can't wait for a return trip and further explorations!
