Blessed by the last light of an autumn day 06

Sunset view from the roof terrace of the National Museum of Scotland earlier this week, one of the best (and free!) places to take in views of the city. This time of year the sunlight is stretched out to a warm, coppery-gold, especially around sunrise and sunset. Add in the contrast of that autumnal light with the long shadows over Edinburgh's geology and architecture and it is just glorious to drink in (the pics really don't quite capture the light quality, not as it looks to the eyes, standing high up, looking over this remarkable city).

 

Looking North from the roof terrace over the Old Town, you can see the "crown" topped spire of Saint Giles Cathedral prominent on the left, the old stonework glowing in the light of the setting sun
