PHOTO – Edinburgh winter sunset


Today was another cracker of a day in Edinburgh. A bit chilly to begin with, but the sun was shining all day long.

I was shopping in town about 5pm and it looked like it would be a good sunset, even in the centre of town. Out with the camera (always have at least one) and the following pictures are what I managed to capture with my point and shoot Panasonic over the space of about 45 minutes. All photos are unedited and no tripod was used.
