Amazing Edinburgh! (1)

I often obsess on how nice this city is, but I also don’t think I’m exaggerating. It’s an amazing place, not too big, but with amazing buildings everywhere, history everywhere, hills in the middle of the city, a castle dominating the skyline, bagpipes playing in the background, an interesting history, and many more things. I loved it, and here are a few pictures from Edinburgh, the mighty Scottish capital city.

Amazing views like this one are everywhere.

Here, the mighty Scott monument stands proud and tall. This is the world’s largest monument dedicated to an 014_900x1200.jpg

You can even climb the monument through some really narrow stairs, and get some amazing views, like the one bellow showing Princess 013_900x1200.jpg

Here, the hill that hosts Holyrood Park. From up there you get an amazing panorama of the whole city, and you can see the sea as 011_1600x1190.jpg

More photos from this amazing place will follow a bit later!

Amazing photos and prints!

I’m a biochemistry student who, besides the subject that I’m studying, I love photography. Whether it’s nature photography, urban, macro, etc., I love capturing moments and scenes. I would also love to see my photos be used, and I want people to see them, so I decided to create snailshutter to show and sell my photos. So whether you just want to see my amazing photos, or buy them, you are more than welcome to check out my blog and my Facebook page @snailshutter. Enjoy!

Bellow two examples of my photos (more will be shown in following posts – I will also try to add a description and/or a short story about the photo and about the place/object/person in the photo.

Here, the majestic York minster, in York, England. This amazing, Gothic-style cathedral, one of the largest of its kind in Northern Europe, managed to amaze me at first site.  snailshutter 001.jpg

This is a panorama of Barcelona, a beautiful city that has almost everything. Amazing building, the feeling of a big city, hills on one side, the sea on the other side, friendly people, nice beer, nice cafes, nice food … a city I would definitely like to see again, or even move and live there.
