I got my wish to cover this year’s Press Night for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo on the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle – my third.

Commissioned by the recently formed Destination Edinburgh Marketing Alliance, the brief was to seek out images from differing angles and composition as well as colours that match the Edinburgh Inspiring Capital’s brand colours.

So another great night shooting stunning displays of music, dance, and pipe bands from all around the globe – a truly international gathering of performers. The joy of coverng this event is on previous blogs >> Edinburgh Military Tattoos 2006 and 2008.
