Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 14 July 2012 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

At the top of the monument looking across the newer part of Edinburgh toward Leith and The Firth of Forth. St Andrews Square and the monument can be seen to the right

Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

What a beautiful clear day for these shots. And a great vast view of that special, and very substantial robust and historical city. That a good description? That was my impression.
