Skywatch Friday - University, with sunset
Just before 5pm on Wednesday there was the most gorgeous sunset over Edinburgh. I was stuck inside the University of Edinburgh's Old College. The downside of old buildings is that many of the windows have very old glass that is rippled by the effect of gravity. Add to that a layer of city grime, even in a city that no longer merits the name 'Auld Reekie', and it can be difficult to find a clear enough window through which to take a photo. The higher I went in the building the more fantastic the sunset became, with the rooftops and spires of Edinburgh stretching away towards the west, and the line of the Pentland Hills to the south. And the higher I went the dirtier the windows became. The frustration!
So this is the best I could do. No hills or spires, just the quadrangle of Old College completely outclassed by the sky.
More skies are at Skywatch Friday.
