Skywatch Friday - gothic spaceship
The Scott Monument on Princes Street was described by Bill Bryson as a 'gothic spaceship'. Against a backdrop of exploding contrails this was exactly what it looked like on Saturday morning.
It wasn't easy to get this shot, trying to hold my wee camera steady against a southerly gale. And while standing in the middle of the road between traffic light sequences.
More bloggers risking life and limb for a shot of the sky are at Skywatch Friday.
And an update for Kelly, who asked about the Gaelic pronunciation of 'Bheniamian' (Benjamin), in my post Language lessons. I consulted an expert, and it's pronounced 'Venyamin'.
