Skywatch Friday - castle beacon
Against a clear Spring sky a brazier on Edinburgh Castle's ramparts waits for fuel. I pass the Castle every day on my way to work, and it's easy to forget that it was built for war.
The stark outline of the brazier brought this home to me as I took these shots.
I haven't visited the Castle since I was 6. Perhaps it's time to scrape together the £14 entry fee. It's an expensive business being a tourist in your own city.
