Until I go #11

Two photographs today – views of Edinburgh taken from Calton Hill, looking along to Princess Street below. The foreground is the Dugald Stewart monument. All three photos today were taken using a Fuji XT-4 camera with a Fuji XF 16-55 f/2.8 lens.

This image features the monument dominating the view. Dugald Stewart was a leading Scottish philosopher of the Enlightenment and was a Professor at Edinburgh University. The monument was designed by Scottish architect William Henry Playfair, who also designed the National Monument. 1/200s @f/5.6 and 40.1mm ISO 160
In this image, the angle allows you to see, to the left, the upper part of St Giles’ Cathedral. 1/200s @f/5.6 and 16mm ISO 160

Featured Photo

The featured photo, from a slightly different angle, shows Edinburgh Castle, not clearly shown in the other two photos.
