Variations of sunlight and viewpoint

Even if you haven't been to Edinburgh you will probably recognise this view. The reason that I have placed the two photos together is because of the lighting. The first is taken from the esplanade in the morning. If you like your subject sunlit then you have to go to Edinburgh Castle in the morning. The second photo is taken from the roof of the Camera Obscura building.

There is a great sense of history in Edinburgh. There are guided tours, museums and events but the physical geography was the thing that struck me the most. I really wouldn't want to attck the castle from any route other than the one you can see now. That's why the cannons are pointed towards you so now you also now the direction of the photo in the blog from Friday.

Happy snapping
