Edinburgh and Glasgow in Color Splash


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!

Here is one of the courtyards of Hollyroodhouse Palace in Edinburgh. I decided to highlight the perfect green lawn. The grass is gorgeous in Scotland thanks to all of the rain.


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.

    Love the way you did this Liz! With all its granite Edinburgh is a naturally gray place, and this is a terrific way to showcase the color.

    Inspired idea! I have thousands of photos from Ireland, but rarely use them as they look so dull and miserable, with their grey skies. Might just use this effect to tackle them :) Is the effect only available on the iPad?
