I rarely carry my Sony A6000 camera with me unless I’m on vacation. I’m always too worried about it getting broken in my backpack! However, I took it with me last week when I went for afternoon tea with my sister and a few friends, and managed to capture the gorgeous sunset on my way home!

Edinburgh at sunset via Wayfaring With WagnerOne of the worst things about living in Edinburgh is the lack of sunlight and the constant rain! I really didn’t believe people but trust me, after living through a winter here, I think it is enough for me! We are finally over the hump and spring is in sight :) I’m taking every opportunity to be outside. Whether that means afternoon walks through New Town or trying out new places., it is just so nice to finally see sunlight past 4:30 pm.

And look at the light reflecting off the windows!!! That is probably my favorite part of all these pictures :) This cathedral dates back to around 1100 but has undergone extensive renovations. It is named after Saint Giles, the patron saint of Edinburgh. I went to a wonderful Christmas carol service here this past December. Definitely don’t miss this cathedral on your trip to Edinburgh!

    So gorgeous! And so much better when it’s not swarmed with people around :)

  2. Ahh, love Edinburgh’s skies! Winter in the UK is a bummer when it comes to sunlight but you’ll forget allllll about it in the summertime when it’s sunshine until 10pm ;)

  3. so beautiful! it’s been rainy and grey here for far too long. I could definitely go for some cotton candy sky ;)

  4. Living on the Royal Mile must be so cool!

    I had a major Sony A6000 fail yesterday. I totally meant to bring it with me to the St. Patrick’s Day parade but when I grabbed it my battery was dead. Oh well, my iPhone did a good job but your pics remind me how great the pics could have been.

  5. So gorgeous! The gloomy winter weather can be so rough for me, I am so happy spring is on its way! I can’t wait to come visit you! :)
