The Sir Walter Scott monument. The largest monument to an author anywhere. You can climb inside it up to the top which gives a wonderful lookout into the city. It is a huge, imposing edifice in the heart of Edinburgh and, for me, defines the city as a whole. It is because of this that I knew I had to go and visit.
I took several photos of and on it during the day, but came back in the evening for this shot. I waited for an hour or more for the light in the sky to become just what I needed it to be.
