I had a late afternoon wander around the centre today, expecting to get some shots of all the festivities going on. But I ended up circling round Princes Gardens a couple of times, not being able to pick out any shots I wanted - there were either too many distracting lights or else the scene was just too busy.
So it was a good job that there was a nice sunset to keep me busy! I took this shot from the mound, where I stood for about 45 mins freezing my bollocks off, waiting to get the shot. My early shots gave me a distinct silhouette of the castle, but I prefer this shot that was taken later on when the lights came on - I like the balance between the ambient and artificial light.
It was interesting to see how many other people were out today with their tripod - they were like moths to the bright lights of the city!
