About This Image

Having visited Edinburgh, Scotland twice, it holds a special place in my heart as does the beautiful castle in this print. Edinburgh Castle sits at the top of the Royal Mile. And on my last night in that beautiful Scottish city, I had to make one last walk up to the castle before going back to the hotel to pack.

When I headed up, I  had planned on being there at dusk when the castle lights came on for my last photos. That much went according to plan, but I couldn’t have asked for a better dusk than I got that evening. It was as if Edinburgh was wishing me a fond farewell with a great view of its famous castle against that dusk blue sky.

This photo of Edinburgh Castle was taken from the Esplanade. This wide open space in front of the castle is where a lot of events like the Military Tattoo take place. On a winter evening in January, it was largely empty save a few people like me up there to see the view. Compared to the madding crowds on my first time there, it was a refreshing change to enjoy the sight of that iconic fortress in relative peace.

I had stayed a couple of weeks and most of the tourists there for Hogmanay had long since gone home. I loved the New Year’s Festival so much I came for it twice, but I didn’t miss the crowds. A few people were still there though, and don’t those silhouettes provide a great sense of scale to that beautiful old castle in this print?

Note: Edinburgh’s Old Town (where the famous castle sits) and New Town are UNESCO listed World Heritage Sites.

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
