Photographer's Note

This is a view of the Glasgow skyline one evening taken from Camp Hill in Queen's Park on the Southside of the city. This is one of the highest parts of the city and you get a fantastic panoramic view of the city looking North with the hills rising up behind. This is a view towards NW with the tenements of Pollokshields in the foreground looking over to Glasgow University (the long building with a tower in the centre and the distant Campsie Fells beyond.

Glasgow isn't exactly Paris or Florence but I've always thought it has a weirdly romantic quality to it, especially in the evening. I don't know if that's just me being biased because I live here!

Just south of the park are the Battlefield and Langside districts which is where the battle of Langside was fought leading to Mary Queen of Scots exile in England.

Photographically I used a warm-up filter to emphasise the evening glow and counteract Provia's slightly cool tinge and an ND grad filter to darken the sky and retain more detail. I'm not totally sure this scan isn't slightly tilted to one side - I've found it hard to judge becuase there are also some converging verticals and the slight barrel distortion from the lens. Oh well. I don't feel too seasick looking at it.
