do you remember that other morning i was bitterly complaining about the awful gloomy weather!? well this photograph was taken on that exact day - how on earth can you complain, when such a stunning photograph can be taken on these dull days :) this photo has been shared upwards of 8000 times, and is all over my newsfeed (link to orginial here) so just had to share, the accompaning blurb pretty much sums it all up, and is exactly why i love this city! x
"There are few places in the world that look so beautiful as Edinburgh on a gloomy day. It is easily one of the most intriguing and magical cities on earth, full of narrow closes, that feel like deep gorges, runn
ing through the tall tenements of the old town that eventually open up onto wide busy thoroughfares.
Right at its centre atop of a giant, sheer cliff faced rock, stands the medieval castle of Edinburgh, that long kept the denizens of Edinburgh safe during times of war.
It is a city like no other, with history seeping from every ancient stone, it is easy to see how JK Rowling dreamed up the world of Harry Potter here!"
