12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The dead whale

Edinburgh is not renowned for its whales! It was therefore a major event and attraction when, sadly, a dead subadult sperm whale washed ashore on Joppa beach on the outskirts of the city. I had to go to see it for myself. Cockenzie Power Station is seen in the background here.
