Smoked salmon which Scotland is famous for is served here with scrambled eggs to make a tasty breakfast. The Scots eat a lot of smoked salmon as well as kippers, langoustines and haddock to name a few. Its hearty fare for hard-working Scots to sustain them through the cold winters. Porridge and oatcakes also are widely served for breakfast in Scottish restaurants.

This obviously has nothing to do with food, but I wanted to add it to my blog. A collage made up of several photos of scenes in Edinburgh, Scotland done in Photoshop CS2. It's my first after taking an online layers class taught by Richard Lynch at Better Photo has some fantastic online classes in photography and related subjects.
