A bit more of Edinburgh …

IMG_2768_v2

I’d love to be able to say that ‘due to public demand’ I’m posting more of the photos that were taken on our recent early morning Edinburgh walk, but that wouldn’t honestly be the case, although I did receive a number of comments about the previous post, which really made my day!

This second batch covers similar ground, but from different views, and again hopefully emphasises what a beautiful city Edinburgh is, starting with the photo above, taken in Princes Street Gardens, showing the colours of spring.

Although I had quite a few of the Castle in the previous post, I couldn’t resist one more
