Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

Looking from the elevated position of the Back Braes over the rooftops of South Queensferry, Scotland.

To the locals the town is The Ferry. I have lived here for the last 23 years, so just four more generations and my descendants may be accepted as locals.

On the High Street, in the center of the shot is the top of the Jubilee Clock Tower (built 1887) and at the back of the shot is the ramp leading onto the Forth Road Bridge.

Shot taken during the redbubble day out in South Queensferry on Sunday 31 May 09.

Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Digital Rebel XSi in the USA)


Three bracketed JPGs converted to HDR in Photomatix.
