Edinburgh Zoo is a magical place after dark for the next three months.
The Giant Lanterns were lit last night. With illuminated dragons, snowdrops and lotus flowers alongside many of the zoos favourite animals it is a truly enchanted place.
Trying to capture the images with an 11 year old camera sensor that looks grainy over ISO800 meant I went for exposures that did not try to capture any surrounding light.
I like how this has meant the lanterns seem disconnected from their surroundings.
