Edinburgh, Scotland

I had someone ask me about this picture the other day, so I thought I would post it here if anyone was interested.

This is a panoramic picture I took from the top of Edinburgh Castle in Scotland in the summer of 2009. It consists of about fifteen pictures digitally stitched together into one massive panoramic picture. It represents about 170 degrees looking out from the front of the castle.

It's a fairly large file (7 MB) so I'll just post a link to it here:

Edinburgh Panorama

You may need to click on it to enlarge it once it loads fully.

Nice.
Went to Edinburgh for a school trip once, they still had steam locomotives at Waverly station.
If it was that easy everyone would be doing it!

I just came across this thread. Great pic and work putting it together. Kinda strange, just last week I was going through some of my Dad's stuff I had boxed up since he passed. Tons of pics as he was into photography back in his younger days. I found a big stack of penny post cards with many of them having scenes of Edinburgh on them. They are all from WWII days when he was there during the war but evidently never got to mail. He was career Navy and spent time in both the Atlantic and the Pacific during the war. If I can remember how to use my flat bed scanner maybe I can get them scanned and post a few of Edinburgh in the 30's and early 40's.

One of my favourite cities- used to live about forty minutes drive from there about a decade ago.
Are we having fun yet?

They would be great to see, I use to love going and visiting Edinburgh and surrounding areas when I was younger (Hiking and canoeing (White water))..
