Rainbow lasers lit up the Edinburgh skyline as part of a colourful artwork.
The spectacular show was the Scottish premiere of Global Rainbow, an installation by Puerto Rico-born artist Yvette Mattern.
The artwork beams seven parallel shafts of light across the skyline, representing a “spectacular rainbow crashing through what seemed like apocalyptic clouds” the artist witnessed in 2007.
Ms Mattern said: “This year, more than ever before, Global Rainbow can bring together communities to look ahead to a brighter future, while reflecting on the year past.
“Edinburgh is a perfect stage for the installation and I was very excited to see the rainbow reach out above the city.”
The Global Rainbow installation has already been seen in cities around the world including New York, Berlin, Sao Paulo and Toronto.
