Scotland is a magical place where the colors seem to pop — especially if you’re having fun with the Color Splash app on your iPad mini. But it is a place where color stands out, even without the help of technology. In the photo above, I was happy (and a bit jealous) to see this cheerful plaid umbrella at Edinburgh castle.
There are many colorful crests throughout Edinburgh Castle. I really liked how they added a little color — and a lot of pride — against the dark gray stone. Truly a bit of cheer in massive, sometimes foreboding Edinburgh Castle. So with Color Splash I made sure that this crest can’t be missed!
George Square is the most famous part of Glasgow, and The Scott Monument is the most famous part of George Square. The Scott Monument is made of orange-hued stone, but here it looks a bit brighter than in real life. Visually, the Scott Monument competes with the massive Glasgow City Chambers behind it, so I solved the problem here by emphasizing the color. It’s one of my favorite monuments in Scotland.
There’s something about Scotland that just lends itself to playful photography. Check out my panoramic photos of Scotland, which I took with my Sony HXV’s iSweep technology.
