The Cannon On Calton Hill (Explored at #1 on 9/17/11)
(Moved up to #1 on Flickr Explore at 4:00 PM, 9/21/11. Thanks for the views, comments, and faves! )
This is the second in a series of shots from one of the most beautiful spots in Edinburgh. Calton Hill is covered with monuments, and I think I completely filled a 32 gig card while I was shooting up there.
"Calton Hill is the headquarters of the Scottish Government, which is based at St Andrew's House, on the steep southern slope of the hill; with the Scottish Parliament Building, and other key buildings, for example Holyrood Palace, lying near the foot of the hill. The hill also includes several iconic monuments and buildings: the National Monument, Nelson's Monument, the Dugald Stewart Monument, the New Parliament House (the Royal High School), the Robert Burns Monument, the Political Martyrs' Monument and the City Observatory." - Wiki
