It is a great privilege to live in Edinburgh which was recently voted 4th most beautiful city in the world. Edinburgh has plenty to offer from beautiful houses to zombie chases; festivals and hills; wild life and cemeteries. Edinburgh is by the sea and not far away from the mountains. This gallery shows a selection of my shots of this beautiful city.
