Another shot of the Christmas Sky Flyer, Perhaps the last from Princes Street Gardens! As something peculiar happened this afternoon that left me somewhat bamboozled.
I was approached by two security staff, who clearly didn’t want to be there.
They Told me, ye cannae film here
Me – I’m not filming, it’s long exposure photography.
they had a somewhat confused look on their faces, after a few moments they responded with ‘Nah, you still cannae use a tripod, you must get permission from underbelly however can use the Christmas market area between the stalls’
They could not give me a reasonably answer why, that area is forbidden.
It’s all rather daft, as social media is full of similar shots – I myself have done this site 2013
it wont stop me – I’ll be back! 😉
Well it’s that time of the year already… its flown past
so with the Christmas attractions out already, its time to experiment with some log exposure night shots… here is the Star Flyer. Bit of a scunner, I cut the top of the Scott Monument off 🙁
Edinburgh Christmas 2016
A gift From Norway! 🙂
Every year since 1947 Norway has sent over a giant Norwegian spruce Christmas tree to Edinburgh, this is in gratitude and remembrance for the support during the second world war.
Similar to a photo posted last week, but this one had a 15 second exposure. – I like the corkscrew effect on it.
