January Light: Scott Monument

For Day 5 of January Light, it’s over to Edinburgh where the spotlight is on this statue to Walter Scott, part of the eponymous monument on Princes Street. Pop over to Becky’s blog for all the info on her square photo challenge: words ending in light.

    I’m catching up with everyone’s challenge posts and I have to say how clever you all are with your interpretations. Nice one Anabel. ๐Ÿ˜

    I thought it was going to be up the Scott Monument. Well worth a couple of quid to squeeze up and down the ever narrowing staircase to the top. That last squeeze always makes me laugh, it’s so mad if you meet someone midway and they attempt to get past rather than waiting.

    A wonderful dramatic moody shot. Well done the two of you ๐Ÿ˜Š

    A sad looking chap, isn’t he? I seem to remember it’s wired off at the top because of potential suicides. Great capture though! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was planning to climb to the top of this monument when I was in Scotland. But it was under repair. Next time!

    WP still won’t let me *like* posts, so just consider this one *liked* ๐Ÿ™‚ John did a great job of capturing the light … something I tend to get mixed results with.

      Really, how bizarre! WP can be so annoying sometimes. Thanks for the compliment to my photographerโ€™s skills. Iโ€™ll keep on employing him, I think.

    ooh I like your spotlight . . I have a spotlight on a plinth planned for later in the month, but mine isn’t as splendid as yours.

    I really like that one!

        Itโ€™s rather fine anyway though Iโ€™m sure the editing and repositioning made all the difference.

        It was the editing that made it what it is ๐Ÿ˜‰


I'd love to hear what you think!
