Edinburgh Castle

This is a picture of Edinburgh Castle at sunset, taken from the roof terrace of the National Museum of Scotland in late autumn 2008. This particular sunset had been spectacularly orange and pink, and by the time I'd managed to get up to the roof it had turned to the deep purple you see here. I am especially pleased with it because despite the low light levels I didn't use a tripod - no time to hunt one out - and as it was very windy it proved quite difficult to keep the camera still.

I used a Nikon D60 (not my usual camera) f/7.1, 800 ISO
