Beltane 2013

Like last year, Beltane was an amazing experience just before the exams and before we all went home for summer.

And if you click on the thumbnails they open in a gallery.

A bit of shameless plugging….if you want to purchase any of the pictures as prints just contact me…I need to make money for a new camera 😀


and a very nice time lapse video of the whole evening:


Pictures ( III ) Beltane

Beltane is a celtic fertility festival which celebrates the beginning of summer. It’s a fire festival and it takes place on the 30th of April. It’s on Calton Hill and organised by the Beltane Fire Society. The Festival was impressive. There were so many volunteers involved to celebrate this special day. It took place on Calton Hill another one of my favourite spots in Edinburgh.

I was just stunned by the atmosphere, the people… Have a look at the pictures, I can’t describe it with words. By clicking on them, they open in a new window.

Supermoon at Edinburgh

Some weeks ago, in May, there was this super moon rising over Edinburgh. I did not know about it (we had a picknick on Calton Hill and it was freezing…) but then we saw it and it was so beautiful. I tried to take some pictures, but the moon seems to be smaller and a egg – weird camera 😀 (if you click on the pictures you can have a look at them on full screen – they look better then).
