St Andrews Panorama

So, after a (far too long) break, I think it's time to post a new photo, well not exactly new, as this one comes from my archives. And that was also the reason for this break, since I just had no new photo material and hardly any good photo opportunities in the last two months. And I didn't know what to upload from my archives. In the end, I decided to post this panorama view of the Scottish town of St Andrews, partly because I love the atmosphere of this picture, it was taken in February last year, but it already felt like Spring and that is quite different from this year, where we've had no real Spring-like days so far. Hopefully, this photo will speed things up a bit, so we can welcome Spring along with days like this one in St Andrews last year soon. :-)

St Andrews (Scottish Gaelic: Cill Rìmhinn) is located on the east coast of the council area of Fife and is named after Saint Andrew the Apostle. The town has 14,000 inhabitants and is known for various reasons:
First of all, it is home to Scotland's oldest university: University of St Andrews (founded 1410-1413). Secondly the town was the ecclesiastical capital of Scotland until the Reformation. And thirdly the town is known as the home of golf.

This photo was taken on a pier just outside the town and offers a view on two landmarks of St Andrews that I also posted before: the ruins of St Andrew's Cathedral and St Andrews Castle.

Unfortunately, the Exif Data got lost, because I had re-installed Paint Shop and therefore it didn't save them automatically anymore.
I hope you like this photo anyway and thanks for your visit!
