Blessed by the last light of an autumn day 08
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).
Outlook Tower, part of the Victorian Camera Obscura which sits near the top of Castlehill, right by the gates to the Castle Esplanade, and still a very popular visitor attraction, not to mention an integral part of the Old Town's skyline
