Ramsay Garden, Edinburgh


Seen on a brisk autumn walk up to Edinburgh Castle.

Ramsay Garden (or Ramsay Gardens) is a block of sixteen private apartment buildings in the Castlehill area of Edinburgh, Scotland. They stand out for their red ashlar and white harled exteriors, and for their prominent position, most visible from Princes Street.

Developed into its current form between 1890 and 1893 by the biologist, botanist and urban planner Patrick Geddes, Ramsay Garden started out as Ramsay Lodge, a block of Georgian “garden homes” built by the poet and wig-maker Allan Ramsay the Elder in 1733.

Feedback, comments & advice very much appreciated.

All Clouds Lead to Mt. Tahtali ~ Roads Less Traveled Photography


It was quite a technical challenge putting this together, even before I got to the HDR part.

This set of photos, seven in all, were taken in a kayak off the Antalya coast of Turkey, on the Mediterranean Sea. Back on land, these seven photos were aligned and stitched into a panorama using Hugin. (It was only then that I noticed the cloud formation seen in the final photo). The uneven edges were trimmed in Lightroom. Created virtual copies at 0EV, -1EV, +1EV. Created the HDR in Photomatix, then added final touches in Topaz Adjust. Whew!
