With the change to British Summer Time today we're bidding farewell to the dark months of the year. Various artistic efforts are made to counterbalance the dark, such as this Field of Light display in Edinburgh's St Andrew Square. If you click on the link you'll see the display from above, where it looks much more artistic than it did to me as a groundling. I was all too aware of the yards of cabling. Perhaps a good view was had from the restaurant of Harvey Nichols, which is the tallest building towards the right of the shot.
After Earth Hour yesterday, what strikes me about this scene is just how lit up our city darkness is. Some find this comforting, but the longer I live in a city the more I wish for proper winter darkness of the countryside. It seems - strangely - less dark than the overdose of artificial light.
For the next few months, tho, natural light is growing all the time. Even if the first day of Summer Time is a grey haar brought in by a bitter East wind.
