Edinburgh gets ready for Christmas celebrations

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Like it or hate it, the colour of the sky was very strange. Whilst on the Calton Hill, it rained, sleeted and snowed, but the sky was just amazing. I only hope I have captured the stormy feel of the scene.

Hello Alexandra & Karl-Heinz, thank you for your visit and awards. It was a very cold December night with rain, sleet and snow! However I think the weather is what gives this shot such vivid colours and reflections. I am pleased you think so too. Regards from Edinburgh :)
