Twinkling Edinburgh

a1-9117-001

View from Edinburgh Castle

I first came to Edinburgh with my parents in the mid-70s, en route further north.  We stayed near what was then a very small airport and the romance of travel made an impact on me.  I visited again as a student in the early 80s and had a brief romantic fling with a fellow student.  Now, I visit whenever I have the chance and it’s the city that provides the romance.  It is a stunning place that is looking its very best just now with twinkling lights, crisp winter air and low golden sun.

Golden Treetops in Winter

Every possible type of precipitation was visited upon me (except actual snow) yesterday in a bitterly cold Glasgow.  But as evening approached, the sun illuminated this tree in the finest golds and yellows, forming a brilliant contrast to  the leaden sky.

The Eiffel Tower takes on a different persona in the rain.  It has a beauty of its own.
