Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #250: Skyscape or Cloudscape

Happy Sunday! Amy from The World is a Book… is the hostess for this week’s Lens-Artists Challenge and what a great theme she’s chosen for this week – Cloudscape or Skyscape.

I thought about continuing my documentation of my trip in this post but the weather sucked yesterday as I spent the day exploring Glasgow. There was also a few drizzle here and there, not to mention it was chilly. So, I’ll leave that for another day.

This is from my train ride from England to Scotland a few days ago. We have been lucky to be blessed with good weather while we’re in the UK. It hasn’t rained (on us) since we’ve been in the UK, at least until yesterday, but I haven’t had to use an umbrella. I’ve truly been surprised because I was fully expected to be cloudy and rainy everyday, not sunshine and clouds.

We took a bus from Glasgow to Edinburgh on Friday morning. After one week, I’ve learned to book everything in advance because of a thing called, “Timed entry”. Thankfully, I was able to get ticket to Edinburgh Castle a few days before. It was truly a wonderful place to visit. I enjoyed the history and seeing the ancient architecture. It gave my imagination a kick-start to wonder how these people used to live.

This picture was taken as I was making my way up to the castle. This was only about a third of the way up and already, the castle already looked like something floating in the sky. The road up was seriously steep. The only other time I can remember seeing such a steep road was Lombard Street in San Francisco.

Finally, I really like how the clouds are circling the Edinburgh International Festival Site. It makes it look like there’s some sort of power the building has over the cloud. The other photo is one I took earlier in the day in Princes Street Garden. I like the way the trees framed the mix of new and old buildings. The sky in the picture looked both ominous and hopeful.

  1. Wow! you are having a great trip. You can always count on England and Scotland to bring weather. I agree, The castle does look like it is floating. I imagine now everyone can make the trek to the top. Glad you did. Great post.
