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!
One 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.
Gorgeous St. Giles’ Cathedral! This was a rarity that I could get pictures of the cathedral without a million people in front of it. 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!
The magnificent Royal Mile! I’m spoiled to live in an apartment on the Royal Mile (although a bit further down so it is much quieter). The Royal Mile is positioned between the Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace.
