A view across the front of the modern Scottish Parliament building to the ragged Salisbury Crags, part of the volcanic hill of Arthur’s Seat in Holyrood Park. I liked the contrasts between the modern architecture and the ancient volcanic rocks as well as the repeated blues of the water and the sky.

The Scottish Parliament was officially opened in October 2004 and is located at the bottom of The Royal Mile, just opposite Holyrood Palace.

Location: Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

    Hey Kasia!! The pollies sure get a good view don’t they?! And love that roof!! Great shot!!! :))

  • Vicki, hey there! Lovely to hear from you. They have a lovely view outside and inside too. It was designed by an architect from Barcelona with lots of light and wood. He got a lot of criticism but standing there in that light I could understand his idea. Slàinte my dear! Kasia

    Super shot Kasia. You either love or hate that building but everyone agrees that it cost way too much – the usual rip-off of the taxpayer …

  • Tom, thank you! I think the building itself is quite fascinating. The location and the cost are something else! Kasia
