Today is such a wet day we decided not to venture far! We started out walking up Calton Hill, where the iconic follies, memorials and other buildings looks wonderfully atmospheric in the Autumnal mist and drizzle.
and there are wonderful views over Edinburgh too
We then had a coffee break and continued our walk in Princes Street Gardens with it's views of the Scott Monument
and Edinburgh Castle
Lovely to see the fallen cherry leaves carpeting the ground in places
Just a reminder that the Living Edinburgh Autumn Changes Edinburgh photo competition is open until the end of the month. You can find out more here
Oh, God! I know that according to others I am not supposed to like landscapes like this one (being Cuban and born on a tropical island) but I am a sucker for autumn (and spring!). Love, love those photos. I wish I could walk up that hill, even with the rain. Thanks.
Greetings from London.
Almost looks like an astronomical observatory up there
May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to your home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.
Hi Simon, one of the buildings indeed is (or was) an observatory!
I never really mind a drizzly day - lovely walk.
