View from the Camera Obscura

In the foreground, two photographers stand on the platform that surrounds the Camera Obscura tower.

In the background is Edinburgh Castle and the Castle Esplanade.  The building closest to the Castle Esplanade on the left hand side Castlehill (the road leading to the esplanade) is Cannonball House.

The Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre is the building on the extreme left of this photo.

This photo was taken as a cloud passed in front of the sun, so avoiding the harsh shadows that can fall across Castlehill in the middle of the day.
