Me-Now-Views; Less Speak More Peek

As peeked last week, I went atop a hill - Blackford Hill to be precise - whilst in Edinburgh. The ground was frozen and the sky was ice. Breathtaking in every sense. On Blackford sits the Royal Observatory of Edinburgh, the original towers being very photogenic. Then the panorama proper (remember to click for biggification!), showing the spires down The Royal Mile, to the Castle round to Arthur's Seat and past the Observatory; behind is the Firth of Forth.  Then individual shots following the same tracking.




















































































































I couldn't feel my fingers by the end of that half hour, but it was worth it!!!

  17. What a magnificent building! All beautiful photos! BTW, concerning the potato skins, thanks for the advice but mom ALWAYS leaves the skins on. Like you, she thinks it is delicious. The thing that has really triggered the issue is that mom decided to stop taking her medicine and try to deal with it in other ways. And somehow me and Stanley are the ones suffering!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
