Edinburgh, Layers of Grey   4 comments

Close to the North Sea, Edinburgh can sometimes appear as grey and bleak as the weather that rolls in off the ocean.  But there is also a beauty to the monotone stone buildings which stack layer upon layer as the you take in this hillside city.  Where color does appear in Edinburgh, it jumps out at you –whether it’s the flowers and trees that dot the city in the summer, or a permanent fixture like the blue and white bridge in the top photo.  And if you somehow manage to forget that you are in a world-famous European city, all you have to do is look up to the castle that dominates everything from its vantage point above it all.

  2. Phenomenal imagery–and everything is so clear.
