High wire act over Edinburgh Castle
During a visit to Edinburgh at the Festival, I was walking through Princes Street Gardens when I came across an amazing sight.
Through the foliage, as I approached the fountain, I could see a contraption reminiscent of a giant multi-legged insect being suspended by a thread. A massive crane was hoisting aloft a framework that contained cooks and diners for an aerial culinary experience.
I’m not good with heights, especially when swinging on the end of a wire, albeit a strong steel cable so I didn’t partake of the experience other than to shoot a few photographs.
Dangling “above” the world famous Edinburgh Castle on a thin wire. Perspective is a wonderful thing!
All strapped in and comfortable. I hope they didn’t drop any cutlery 🙂
You can never know what might appear at the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe events. I certainly would never have guessed this.
Rather them than me but the diners looked like they had thoroughly enjoyed the experience as they disembarked.
Photographs taken with FujiFilm S5 DSLR using three lenses throughout the shoot, Sigma 12-24mm, Tamron SP 24-135mm and Nikon ED 70-300mm.
