Royal Mile, Edinburgh
13 December 2014
This is The Hub at Royal Mile.
It is a very tall building and I shot this one with my 16-35mm lens on my Canon 5D; wasn’t very happy with it so I switched to the 12-24mm for the second picture (next blog post).
“The Hub, at the top of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, is the home of the Edinburgh International Festival, and a central source of information on all the Edinburgh Festivals.
“Its gothic spire – the highest point in central Edinburgh – towers over the surrounding buildings below the castle. The building design was the result of a collaboration between Edinburgh architect J Gillespie Graham and the famous gothic revivalist Augustus Pugin.
“It was constructed between 1842 and 1845.”
