Here are a few photos from our visit to Edinburgh over Christmas. Aside from the Christmas market, it isn't really the best time to visit Edinburgh because the days are so short. The sun is barely up at 9 am (well, I can understand the sleeping in;) and is already down before 4 pm. So we saw a lot of the Edinburgh Castle bathed in red light.
Yesterday for some odd reason, I realized that I never got around to posting the photos of Tantallon Castle. We drove by the castle on our way back from Edinburgh. It was closed for visitors walking around etc, either due to being Boxing Day or winter...whatever the case that didn't stop me from taking a few photos from a distance.
I have to get back to walking and taking my camera with me now that spring is in the air...and of course doing something with the resulting photos. Last year at this time, I was spending a lot of time at Patuxent Research Refugee. On one of those early spring days, I focused on details, moss, leaves etc. Here are a bunch of the resulting photos.
