Inside Edinburgh Castle

Scotland's largest animal collection is 4 1/2 km (3 miles) west of Edinburgh's city center on 32 hectares (80 acres) of hillside parkland offering unrivaled views from the Pentlands to the Firth of Forth. Run by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, the zoo emphasizes its role in the wildlife conservation (naturally), although recent attempts to get a breeding pair of pandas out of China seemed to have more to do with luring visitors. Still, the zoo contains more than 1,500 animals, including white rhinos, pygmy hippos, and others. It also boasts the largest penguin colony in Europe housed in the world's largest penguin enclosure. From April to September, a penguin parade is held daily at 2:15pm.

Edinburgh Castle is one of the oldest fortresses in Scotland.

At one time it housed over 1,000 prisoners of war in it's dudgeons.

These are images taken from the inside of the castle and were shot using a 'hand held' Sony Alpha A57 SLT camera and Sony DT 35mm f1.8 SAM prime lens without the flash.

There are other Edinburgh albums including the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Butterfly Farm, and Edinburgh City, which are all well worth viewing.

The photo web has been designed using Adobe Lightroom software.
