Edinburgh

My first visit to the city in over a decade, and I was pleased to see that it hadn’t changed too much. This is the annual Princes Street Gardens “Winter Wonderland”, with an ice rink and the “Edinburgh Eye” ferris wheel, amongst other attractions/amusements.

Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise

Ahh Surfers… We won’t be going back!! We had timed our trip, unfortunately, to coincide with “Schoolies Week” and the whole place was awash with drunken teenagers. I had wanted to photograph this fairground at night, as it looked quite spectacular with all its lights, … Read More
