Images of Calton Hill, Edinburgh
One of the joys of Edinburgh is that there are hills inside the city that you can escape to when the hard stone and incessant traffic of the urban environment become overwhelming. Arthur's Seat is the big one, a volcanic remnant with the feel of a real mountain. But when there's only an hour or two to spare Calton Hill with its curious collection of edifices is a wonderful place with soothing trees and grass and widespread and wonderful views. These photos were taken on Calton Hill late one afternoon during my recent trip to the city.
