Edinburgh from West Lomond

From a very windy hilltop in Fife, light on the Forth and the dark shapes of Arthur's Seat and the Salibury Crags.

Water of Leith

No flood defences here, just after the weir at the Quilts, as the river bends towards the bridge at Great Junction Street.

Tony, Stockbridge

The waters have abated but Tony is still festooned with debris from the last high water.  The Bonnington Gormley is still face down and under the surface and will probably be like that all winter.

Sunday, 23 October 2011

More flood works on the Water of Leith, including a temporary bridge to get the heavy plant to where it is needed.

Tree Trunk

Sunshine instead of rain today but very cold.  Last rays of the sun in Victoria Park.

Monday, 17 October 2011


Raining heavily and the car park drains can't cope.  You can tell winter's coming, the rain is getting colder.

Princes Street

Closed for business, well transport anyway. Dug up again without a single tram ever using the rails.

Stockbridge Market

This little market runs every Sunday in the little square by the bridge over the Water of Leith.  The chap sitting on the step is sketching.

The local sports injury clinic goes in for amusing window displays with their skeleton.  I took this last week and am posting it as the heatwave has given way to serious rain and excessive gloominess.
