Edinburgh Castle & Balmoral Clock Tower   Leave a comment

I’ve been to Edinburgh three times, but only on the last trip did I make the hike up Calton Hill to see the grand view of the city.  It is well worth a bit of huffing and puffing to get there.  The expansive views included this image of Edinburgh Castle in the distance with the Balmoral Hotel clock tower in the foreground.  It helps to have a zoom lens to bring in the distant views.  This shot was at 280mm, f/5.6, 1/180th of a second with the lens resting on a railing to steady the shot.  Blue sky and puffy clouds would have been nice, but it is Scotland after all!
