Edinburgh-based photographer Matt, who runs Aye Spy Photography, got up at the crack of dawn on Thursday, April 22, to capture the beautiful landscape from South Queensferry.

The shots show the Firth of Forth glistening as the sky is lit up by a warm yellow glow from a bright sun which can be seen radiating off the water.

Writing on his website, the professional photographer said: “I have a real passion for photography and hopefully that comes across in my shots and you're able to find some enjoyment in them too.”
