MM 3-21 The View from the Roof of the National Museum of Scotland

We visited the National Museum of Scotland one day during our recent trip to Edinburgh and I took this shot from the museum’s roof. It will be my entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Leanne Cole.


View of Edinburgh Castle and The Hub from the roof of the National Museum of Scotland. I processed this photo in Lightroom and then created a pseudo-HDR file in Nik HDR Efex Pro and finally converted that file to monochrome with Nik Silver Efex Pro.

That’s Edinburgh Castle sitting proudly at the top of the hill on the left. The tall building in the center was once known as the Highland Tolbooth Church of St John and was the tallest church in Edinburgh. The church closed in 1979 and the Church of Scotland congregation merged with the Greyfriars Kirk. The building stands at the beginning of the Royal Mile and is now known as The Hub and is the home of the Edinburgh International Festival.

I’ll have more photos of the museum and the views from its roof in my next posting.
