Balmoral Clock Tower, Edinburgh

The view from Calton Hill – Edinburgh, Scotland

28 April 2016 – As it turned out, the night was indeed dark and stormy, though not dark and stormy enough to keep the shutterbugs away! It was no surprise to see other photographers there when we arrived at the Calton Hill lookout just before sunset; after all, the popular public park does offer arguably the best…

Art and about in Spitalfields, London

Firstly, my apologies to anyone with an aversion to puns; the title above was the best I could come up with!
