As I wandered around I bumped into Allan Burnett dressed in his 1854 red tunic and kilt just after he finished entertaining a crowd with tales of historical doings. I had a quick chat as I grabbed a few shots and I found out that he is a well known author, especially books for young people. He is published by Birlinn Press.
We managed to see some more rare (if that’s not an oxymoron) Nacreous Clouds at sunrise today, over the Edinburgh skyline, with Calton Hill, Arthur’s Seat and the church tower of Broughton St Marys visible. Again, the colours were constantly changing and looked weird.
Rare Nacreous Clouds at sunset today, over the Royal Observatory on Blackford Hill. Just about managed to stay upright in the howling gale to get a shot or two. Colours were constantly changing and looked weird.
