Edinburgh and Amsterdam. Two of my favourite cities ❤

I love Amsterdam - and Edinburgh!

I ever knew that there are canals right next to the buildings in Amsterdam

It's incredibly beautiful I would love to see that

Although I think that Prague is more like Edinburgh than Amsterdam. But that is a personal view. (🇨🇿🇳🇱🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Thank you for sharing all these beautiful,places.

I loved that city and Malta in general, and a fascinating history, language and culture with its mix of Arabic, North African, Italian, British and much more.

I have a daytime photo taken many years ago that is almost identical. Possibly standing in the same spot. Thanks for the memory....

Looks amazing!!!🥰

I love this photo, especially in the rain, but imagine come down here on a sledge in the thick snow. What great fun that would be. 😂🤣😂

Cold or warm, damp or dry, I love my Edinburgh!

Edinburgh has a very unique feel about it when it’s raining.

Lots of those days in Scotland but it makes it nice and green.

It's incredibly gorgeous

💖wow...it’s a photo...I thought it was an artists interpretation of the words of Seuss..it’s 👏👏👏

Victoria Street....❤️

Looks like a modern painting

My favorite street.

Where do these people park?

Magical words for a magical scene 🤍

Stunning pic of the beautiful Old Town of Edinburgh. Hopefully not too long before we can revel and marvel there.

Her words captured the truth and the future of this country. Hoping for better days ahead.

Ah...what a marvelous pairing of the powerful words of Amanda Gorman with this beautiful photograph.

my absolutely best place in Edinburgh. I miss so much...

I love your night photos of Edinburgh. I try to get there twice a year at least but not beennow since Nov '19.😪😪😭😭

So mysterious! It captures the beauty perfectly!! X

Love the lighting and colors. 🧔🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

I know those words. And paired with your stunning photo!

My husband and I walked through those street's when we were going together and had no money we even walked them when we did

That was phenomenal. What a poet. What a day.

I like this one , there really is light , just look around

BRILLIANT colours.

Magical words!

Can I assume we're looking to the west here (and not the east)?

Had a wonderful lunch and some cocktails sitting right there I miss it want to go back again!

Saw her getting interviewed on CNN, clever young girl!👍

Wonderful and beautiful picture of Edinburgh at night.xxx

I love Edinburgh. One of my fav Euro cities

Best lines from an amazing poem and a great photo

Love Edinburgh! Great photo! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Great quote and picture! Wish I was there!

Love Edinburgh, been there 4 times.

Beautiful city, will go back when this Covid-19 is over for sure.

Beautiful love going there

Since many of us are stuck at home, I was wondering if I should post a few travel pics ( like this one from Barcelona ).

Question is - will it be good to see other parts of the world - or will it just rub it in that we can't go there?

Let me know what you think!

Armchair travel is great❤️🇦🇺

That's lovely, I love Edinburgh and Barcelona, went to both in 2019.

Great shot. I think we need to be reminded that there is a world outside of our current isolation and we’ll get to go there soon enough.

Since we can’t travel anywhere right now, it’s great to see pictures of places we can hopefully visit ourselves. Soon I hope.

Love Barcelona almost, as much as I love Edinburgh 💖

No more than it rubs because I can't go to Edinburgh.

Travel pics are great idea and will be much appreciated

I love seeing other places because I'll probably never have a chance to see it in person.

Posting travel picks is a great idea.

I think it will be a good idea...bring some sunshine into our isolating lives..

Love seeing your works, we’re here in Massachusetts and missing travel. Plan on returning to Edinburgh next year.

Thanks all. Will post a few travel pics for a while. Will post 3pm (GMT) with the usual Edinburgh pic at 7pm (GMT)

I always choose to travel, no matter the way I do! Thank you for sharing

Yes it's a great idea.. Love to see other parts of the world

Love it, from Australia. More please. missing my travel especially Scotland

Both... but bring it on!...Barcelona is one if the places I long to visit once again.❣️

It would be good to see other parts of our wonderful world,as I can not travel yet.🇬🇧🙏😎🙏🇬🇧

More of the same please. I don’t travel abroad anyway, even when there is no travel ban.

I think it is always amazing to see other parts of the world through photos through anothers perspective or in person through my own viewfinder!!!!

love to see it! Stuck in the US and it's wonderful to travel vicariously. That's the same reason I read....:-) Thank you for the amazing photos.

My dream trip would be Scotland! I can't go, so I am loving your pictures- thank you!

Prefer Scottish pictures. The foreign ones will only tempt people to go on holiday 😢

I love it. I need these glimpses of other places to temporarily transport me out of everyday Covid life

It is not just the place but your brilliant camera work I enjoy.

A few travel pics would be good to see, I think

I have always loved trees from talking to them when I was a little child and stroking their trunks, certain they could hear me, understand and relish my strokes. Trees the sustainers and soil and soul stabilisers.

Thank you for capturing the stark beauty of the Cathedral set against the background of the lovely shades of blue of the sky. The tree is so important as it appears to welcome people to enter.

I LOVE trees and forests, always have! Also magnificent buildings like the one in this picture!

Do you know if anyone is doing similar work in Glasgow /elsewhere?

What stories these cathedrals could tell!

Gorgeous shot! Lovely colors!

just incredibly gorgeous

Stunning.❤️❤️❤️

WOW 🥰🇦🇺🤗

A tree that looks at God all day ,And lifts her leafy Arms to pray ,🌲🌲🌲🌲

We all need to have a place in our minds where we can retreat to,when things are tough.It helps us cope.If we can imagine life beyond the trauma it gives hope.Dreamers are innovative and creative.❤💛❤

As they said in the sixties, “There is a fault in reality”🦄

Wonderful photo!!! And words so true💜

Whenever I see dark shadowy pictures of Edinburgh, I think of DCI John Rebus and wonder what or who is lurking in the shadows. BTW I love that picture.

Loved that book

My favorite book series! And matched so beautifully with this photo!

I read all the Anne books & really loved them. Recently came across Anne of Ingleside & couldn’t resist buying it! Magic!

Oh my Edinburgh so love you xxx

So pretty with the purple tone in the picture! Great quote from a beloved book of many by the great Canadian 🇨🇦 author, L. M. Montgomery!

Well the quote goes: "Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this Son of York". Where's our glorious summer then eh? 😂

Behind those shops is a flat ...which is actually on Castle Wynde. we go there to stay sometimes if we're lucky. we have a little patio and access to the garden just below the castle. we have squirrels come to visit and sometimes we see a rabbit .

It surely is The Winter of Our Discontent, pray that summer will bring with it the beginning of the end of Covid so the people of the world can hope for some normalcy after this horrendous year.🙏 for all.

"The Winter of Our Discontent" is a novel by John Steinbeck, too.

All these great cities crying out for human company so sad

Was there for the Christmas Market 2019 first time in Edinburgh beautiful city old part's and new. Definitely go back when life has some normal to it.

Love these pictures.keep them coming.Thank you.brings back many memories as moved to the west coast no far from Loch Lomond and Aberfoyle.it’s stunning there too in its own way

Love the flurries at night, then disappear in the morning light.

Glorious summer must follow.... together with more glorious pictures

Cannot wait to visit beautiful Edinburgh again... love it x

He was right. But it is spring now! Peace ✌️

Erinnerungen an PUB's zu hauf.

Eerie in Lockdown!

Beautiful, atmospheric picture.

Another fabulous photo!!

Love all these very atmospheric photos.

Let's hope we get the 'glorious summer'.

Here in America, our discontent dissipated somewhat today!

Yes it is, but great painting also!

Beautiful photo in the snow

I bumped into Richard for a 111 time as he was thrown out of the William Shakespeare’s pub in Edinburgh

Is that The Grass Market looking West? Such a beautiful photo and very evocative. Thankyou

It certainly is.

Grassmarket x
