This weeks photo Challenge is illumination.
The first two photos are illuminated interiors in central Edinburgh. They both have stunning sets of arches which are beautifully lit with some fairly antique light fittings. The ceiling of the Portrait Gallery is set with tiny golden stars within painted constellations of the zodiac, and the whole thing glitters beautifully like the night sky.
The second batch of three, are somewhat less majestic photos of a few of the many ancient winding closes which lead off the Royal Mile, in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town. They were taken just as the sun was sinking, and I love the crumbling atmosphere they evoke, of times long past.
