As we headed out of Edinburgh for the A68 I hoped that there would be something interesting for me to photograph from the car.
My wish was soon granted when I spotted the pilgrims in seventeenth century dress setting off on their long walk to Holy island. The flames of Edinburgh’s Old Town on fire illuminated the scene, with the billows of smoke heading into the night sky adding to the atmosphere.
It was such a pity that none of the controls on my camera worked. This would have made the most marvellous shot.
