This view of Edinburgh is attributed to photographer, Colin Baxter. I love how it shows the great volcanic rock that Edinburgh Castle was built on. Stone walls have been unearthed at this sight dating back to the Bronze Age 3,000-5,000 years ago! A lithograph of a view from the ramparts of the castle has hung in our home since we were first married. Visiting the Castle was like walking back in time into that lithograph from 1837. Below the view of Edinburgh, I painted little symbols of other great remembrances of our 3 days in Edinburgh: (l.-r.) 1. A street sign near the Supreme Courts of Scotland for a pub on the Royal Mile; 2. The Crown of Scotland, C. 1540 from seeing the Honours of Scotland at Edinburgh Castle; 3. The great dome of St. Giles Cathedral, where John Knox preached and the mother church of Presbyterians; 4. A statue of a reclining horse in from of the Scotland National War Museum at the Castle with the shield of Scotland, which, in my interpretation, pays tribute to all of the brave horses that gave their lives in the protection of Scotland; 5. A stain glass window of the Duke of Argyll's Coat of Arms in the Great Hall at the Castle representing the contributions of the Campbell Clan to Scotland; and, 6. A red poppy growing near Scotland's Parliament Building in memory of those who lost their lives at Flanders Fields in WWI, and all others who have given their lives for their country.
