Enjoying the Sunset at Dugald Stewart Monument, Calton Hill (situated at the east end of Princes Street), Edinburgh, Scotland - This iconic location offers you views of St Giles Church, Edinburgh Castle, Balmoral Hotel Clock Tower, Scott Memorial and the Ferris Wheel etc. On the hill itself there's the Burns and Nelson monuments and the City Observatory.
Edinburgh Skyline, Balmoral Clocktower, Scotland - The Balmoral is a luxury five-star hotel and landmark located at the east end of Princes Street. Interestingly, since 1902, the hotel's clock has been set three minutes fast to ensure that the people of Edinburgh wouldn't miss their trains. The only day that the clock runs correctly is on 31 December (Hogmanay). The clock tower itself is 190 feet tall. I took this zoomed in from Calton Hill.
Cockburn Street, Edinburgh, Scotland - This picturesque street is located in Edinburgh's Old Town, created as a link from the Royal Mile to Waverley Station (in 1856). It is named after the Scottish judge and literary figure Henry Cockburn (Lord Cockburn) who had a strong interest in architectural conservation. I took this early in the morning. I knew I wanted some light trails, not just because I like them, but because I wanted to hide those yellow bags! I got lucky on my first, attempt :)
Before Sunrise, Clyde Arc, Glasgow, Scotland - The Clyde Arc (aka The Squinty Bridge), constructed in 2006, is a road bridge spanning the River Clyde, connecting Finnieston with Pacific Quay. Glasgow itself is the largest city in Scotland, and third-largest in the United Kingdom. From the eighteenth century onwards, Glasgow grew to one of Britain's main hubs of transatlantic trade with North America. Glasgow is also well known for the football rivalry referred to as the Old Firm, between Celtic and Rangers. One of the best shots of the Clyde Arc is from the Bell's Bridge, opposite SEC Armadillo, and BBC Scotland.
