The Vennel and Edinburgh Castle United Kingdom

This is a very famous spot to photograph in Edinburgh, however it's not a spot that you would just walk into. The Vennel (Vennel means passage) is essentially a lane. I would visit this spot either at sunrise or sunset times. If you go at sunrise, it means less people and you might have the place to yourself.
