Day 211: Royal Scottish Academy

The afternoon sun almost silhouetted the building, making it all the more dramatic.  It's a rather impressive piece of architecture and I love the big white fluffy clouds behind it in complete contrast to the dark straight, heavy lines of the stone.  I really like the flowers they have up on the columns at the moment too - rather prettier than some of the other things they've had up there in the past.  Apparently, the statue on top is Queen Victoria.  I wonder if she did the decorating...
