Architecture in Edinburgh, Scotland

I recently spent a few days up in Edinburgh, Scotland and was amazed at some of the wonderful architecture. I particularly liked the combination of old and modern but was really impressed with the modern architecture. My favourite piece of modern architecture was the new Scottish Parliament building in Holyrood, which was designed by the Catalan Enric Miralles, who unfortunately died before its completion. Here are some of my images from this photogenic building.

The other building that I liked was a combination of old & modern architecture used at Usher Hall in the city centre. Here are a couple of my images.

Here are some more images of this beautiful city.

It really was a marvellous short break and this wonderful city is well worth a visit.

Visiting Norfolk

I have never visited Norfolk until recently when we had a four day break in a lovely converted barn. What stuck me was the variety of the landscape and how peaceful a place it is. The beaches were empty, vast and a wonderful playground for young and old alike. The Norfolk Broads are a serene and beautiful landscape. I thought I’d post some images so that you can see for yourselves. The images are of the Broads, Holkham beach, Cromer beach and Wells next to the Sea.
