Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, forty-five

10 years ago, I began an around-the-world (RTW) journey lasting 389 consecutive days, from 24 December 2011 to 15 January 2013 inclusive.

8 November 2012.

I’m in Edinburgh, high up in Holyrood Park. From the rocky no-guardrail path hugging the edge of Salisbury Crags, there’s an excellent view of the city, including Castle Hill and the steeple of the former Tolbooth Kirk (The Hub) at left, Calton Hill with Nelson Monument and National Monument at right, and the waters of the Firth of Forth in the background. After a landslide dropped boulders onto the path, the city closed public access to Radical Road and the Crags in 2018.

… Edinburgh has also been known as Dunedin, deriving from the Scottish Gaelic “Dùn Èideann.” New Zealand’s Dunedin was originally called “New Edinburgh”, the city’s nickname today is still “Edinburgh of the South”. The Scottish city’s Old and New Towns have been inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995.

I made the image on 8 Nov 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/250-sec, f/8, ISO200, and 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as
