Edinburgh Capital City of Scotland
Although I come from Edinburgh, I’d never ventured to the top of the Scott Monument before, what a view. Don’t know why I’ve never climbed it before.
Captured on Nikon D700 with 50mm Prime f/1.4.
This is the view from the top of the Walter Scott Monument on Princess Street.
In the picture: Foreground Scotland’s National Art Gallery, leading to Princess Street Gardens, Princess Street on the right (notice them digging it all up to lay new tram lines), Edinburgh Castle to the right and St Mary’s Cathedral with three spires in the far distance.
On a clear day from the top of the Scott Monument you can see for miles.
