West Bow leading up from the Grassmarket to Victoria Street.

One of Edinburgh’s most photographed streets and a must see part of the city’s beautiful old town. This morning I was in town dropping off the first of my Christmas card deliveries to shops on the Royal Mile, and so I had a wander around the old town. Last week I photographed Victoria Street in […]

The beauty of Edinburgh’s green spaces are currently transforming into a wonderful colour show to rival anything our festivals can offer.

A sketching tour of Holyrood Palace

My second sketching workshop around the grounds of Holyrood Palace was a huge success, and it was great to see the beautiful works of Canaletto once again. Friday was such a great day, with a lovely sketching tour around Holyrood in the morning and then a walk through Edinburgh’s festival mayhem to see the opening […]
