I was working recently in Edinburgh Castle and I think iconic views of it are instantly recognisable worldwide.
Like most world landmarks that you live near to or see frequently, you tend to take them for granted and wonder what all the fuss is about.
I forgot about the views that can be seen from the ramparts. This one of the Balmoral Hotel with Carlton Hill in the background is a cracker I have to say!

Ask any wedding photographer the thing that really gets them down when covering a wedding and I'll bet you that rain is top of their list. I know it is for me.
A few weeks ago, Lewis and Donna got married on the "Bonnie Banks" at the iconic Luss Church and went on to the fabulous Lodge on The Loch nearby for their reception.
When I arrived about an hour before the service was due to start, the rain was literally bouncing off the car and it was still that way when the groom and best man arrived. Just before three o clock, the sun came out for the brides arrival. During the service, you could hear the rain thumping off the church roof.
Out we all came to blazing sunshine and formal shots were taken down on the beach. I even managed to get the happy couple onto the pier and get the stunning back drop of Ben Lomond. Just as we got back into the Double Six Limousine, the heavens opened up again. Looking at these two photos, you would think it had been like that all day.
Under the circumstances, I was a very happy man.
