So there I was driving through the streets of Edinburgh on my way to David Lloyd fitness club in Newhaven when I saw the Red Arrows zoom overhead. It was just a glimpse up above the houses. Blink and you would have missed them with only their red white and blue smoke trails to denote their passing.
I got a little excited, having not seen the Arrows for years. They never seem to come to the East Fortune Airshow. But after that fleeting moment there was no sign of them.
As I arrived at David Lloyd however, I was overjoyed to find them just starting their display to commemorate Armed Forces Day – directly over Newhaven, my destination. It’s a bit shaky but my iPhone captured the highlights.
Absolutely stunning and a pleasure to see the Red Arrows in Edinburgh.
Another of an occasional post highlighting the truly astonishing images you can capture even on the humble iPhone.
The roads and pathways around Queen Margaret University are lined with sun worshiping solar powered street lamps.
They look like the modern science fiction equivalents of the stone head from Easter Island.
Here they are happy basking in the warm rays of the sun on a bitterly cold Edinburgh Saturday afternoon.
