Sunset view of Edinburgh from Calton Hill
Technical notes: The dreamlike tones in the image stem from my own preconceptions of what Edinburgh would look like at sunset and, unlike most things in life, reality ultimately matched remarkably well. I researched the position from maps before arriving in the city and walked a few miles to Calton Hill well prior to sunset, to get the best position. But it was too early in the day. So I went down the hill to a pub and bided my time appropriately until it was almost too late. Rushed back up the hill and, thanks to my earlier planning, was able to frame the shot just in time.

Splendid! Practically a natural duotone, I love the mood and the softeness, together with the technical accuracy

I love this photo and I have always dreamed of visiting Edinburgh. This is quite eerie. But I love the sense of flying over the rooftops of the town. You are an amazing photographer.
