Spectacular Edinburgh- ‘Athens of the North’

Landscape Photography by Tom Foster

If you’ve ever visited Edinburgh you’ll know there’s nowhere quite like it. A city forged by volcanic forces, mystery and intrigue. Photographer Tom Foster was captivated by Edinburgh’s beauty from a young age. He hopes to capture this enchantment with his Edinburgh photography.

For the past few years, Tom has been sharing with the world photos that illustrate how he sees the city of Edinburgh, as well as the rest of Scotland and further afield. All photos available on this website are available to purchase as prints or digital downloads or to license for commercial use.


“This was a townscape raised in the teeth of cold winds from the east; a city of winding cobbled streets and haughty pillars; a city of dark nights and candlelight, and intellect.”

Dragon or 'Hand of God' over Edinburgh

“This is a city of shifting light, of changing skies, of sudden vistas. A city so beautiful it breaks the heart again and again.”
