The things I do to take photographs...like (as in this case) freeze off (almost!) my fingers and toes while trying to get this shot earlier today.
Perhaps the one positive thing to come from Edinburgh's shambolic (and vastly expensive) tram project is the 'causeway' running along the middle of Princes Street which (as photographic luck would have it) is just wide enough to set up a tripod. An absolute bargain for £580 million (and counting).
The traffic flow along Princes Street is not what it once was (since it's limited to buses, taxis and...er...trams ). As such, I wasn't able to get a single shot where there were good light trails on both sides...AND the Ferris Wheel was in motion.
So, what you see here is an amalgamation of my best left and right side shots.
