Statue On The Scott Monument

My theme last week and this is the wonderfully gothic Scott Monument in Edinburgh, a memorial to the great writer Sir Walter Scott, who died in 1832.

To bring the theme to an end, here’s another shot of one of the many statues on the Scott Monument. I’d love to be able to spend a whole day in Edinburgh, just to shoot all of the statues on all sides of the building in the best possible light … and to go up and shoot from the viewing platforms inside the monument itself. Maybe a summer treat for myself next year?

I hope you’ve enjoyed these photos of the Scott Monument. It’s a magnificent sight, dominating one of the main shopping streets of the city. Has it inspired you to go to Edinburgh (probably the most beautiful of the UK’s capital cities) to visit the monument in person?

I’ll be back next week with a new theme. I haven’t decided what yet 🙂
