There was a brief gap in the snow showers when
this photo was taken on the afternoon of January 3, 2008. This
was the first day that snow fell in
Edinburgh during the winter of 2007-08.
This view looks to the west along Queens Drive.
The road leads down the hill towards the Palace of Holyrood and the
Scottish Parliament, both about 3/4 mile away
The prominent building in the background
(centre-left) is the former James Clerk's School at St Leonard's, now
converted to housing.
