Until I go #7

Having left my hotel in Queensferry, I caught a train into Edinburgh for a few hours of photography before the long journey home.

The monument to the poet Robert Burns on Regent Road at the foot of Calton Hill.

Two things I discovered about Edinburgh that day: it’s a city of monuments and a city of hills and dips. Calton Hill is a fair climb up from the Waverley Railway Station, but it’s a hill that’s festooned with monuments such as the one pictured.

This photo is one that I snapped, out of breath, of Arthur’s Seat, on my way up Calton Hill. Arthur’s Seat is an extinct volcano, situated in Holyrood Park, east of the city centre.

In my next post I’ll include images of a couple of the monuments.

I am a retired local government officer. At that time, I was an IT manager and had associated responsibilities for training. I have previously been involved, in various organisations, with aspects of industrial training and management development. My hobby is photography and, until recently, hillwalking in Snowdonia. I have just written my first novel, Persephone and the Photographer, published as a Kindle eBook.
