Autumn is a season of 'mists & mellow fruitfulness' in the UK, and in many places this means thick fog. However, when the sun shines, our modest autumn colurs improve things a little. This was last October, when visiting my daughter(67KB image)...

Thanks, Dick

I'm on top of Blackford Hill, next to the Royal Observatory, a couple of miles south of the city centre.

Actually, the only bit of history readily visible is the castle on its rock, and the cathedralspire to its right, which is on the Royal Mile running rightwards down the hill.

http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/...10260812dw.exe, which isthe same image,as a 'Pixmaker Lite Postcard'panorama embedded in its own viewer.If you fill the screen with it, you can zoom in, pretend you're in a swing chair, and make yourself nauseous if you're not careful. However, on that you'll be able to see Salisbury Crag, with the cranes on the Scottish Parliament building site, Arthur's Seat, and various other of the sights.
