Sandstone steps

I just loved the sunshine on this ornate stone carving and the shadows leading down.

This sandstone entrance to the Water of Leith cycle path is on ewhaven Road and is so beautiful. Have a look next time you are passing.

The cycle path/ walkway runs along underneath the road from Leith to Trinity and beyond and is a great way to get around the north of Edinburgh traffic free.

Lets hope this sunshine sticks around highlighting the cities stunning architecture.

Shadows on the old railway

I was out for a jog the other day when I was stuck by the glorious blue skies contrasting against the sandy stone coloured bridge, mottled with shadows.

The bridge carries Great Junction Street over the old railway path, now a busy cycle route into Leith.

I love these paths that criss-cross around north Edinburgh, under and over the traffic filled streets, they provide a quiet nature filled walk through the heart of the city.
