Skywatch Friday - cloud chasing
Yesterday I chased these ribs of clouds all the way to work. Seen first of all above an allotment site that borders the Water of Leith walkway:
For the next while, 10 minutes on the flat through a green tunnel of trees, I lost them. Emerging from the trees near Canonmills, my cloud ribs were behind me, and I thought that was the last I'd seen of them.
15 minutes later, after the long pull up Broughton Street, I saw them in front of me beyond the towers of St Paul's and St George's church. Losing definition, but still together in formation.
Another uphill stage, 5 minutes of fast walking past John Lewis and up towards Princes Street:
By this time they're beyond the Victorian grandeur of the Balmoral Hotel, heading south.
Up on to North Bridge, and the castle and Royal Mile skyline set the cloudscape off beautifully:
On the last long pull up North Bridge, I've lost my cloud ribs among a whole family of them.
