A Piper crosses the junction with George IV Bridge as he makes his way up the Royal Mile

I adjusted the colour and contrast of this photo, and the piper now appears to be floating in the air!

The Clan Parade

One of the events at The Gathering, 2009 in Edinburgh was a parade of members of clans up the Royal Mile from Holyrood Park to Edinburgh Castle Esplanade.

The Clan Parade left Holyrood Park at 7.45 pm on Saturday July 25.  Marchers were grouped by clan, following their clan banners up the Royal Mile.  They  marched in  alphabetical order of clan.  Over 7,000 marchers were expected to take part.

Here, a piper crosses the junction with George IV Bridge as he makes his way up the Royal Mile.  St Giles' church can be seen in the background.

It looks to me asif the piper and drummers are almost floating above the ground, as if they have been added on a different layer.  (I don't know how that has happened.  The photo has not been manipulated, other than brightness, contrast, etc.)
