It's THAT castle !!!!!!............Eilean Donan Castle at Loch Duich.......who can resist taking a few shots of this inspiring location....I couldn't !!

I've presented it as a sepia toned mono, as the original colour version doesn't have too much colour in it ?, due to the back-lighting.......but
I'll upload the colour one as a version tomorrow......but I submit this mono as the main one !!

Grateful thanks for the response to 'Objet-de-Mer'.......glad you liked it !!!

Beautifully composed and captured. V1 (my favourite) works very well as a sepia toned mono because, as you say, there isn't much colour in the original anyway.

I reckon its a stunning shot in both versions. Wonderful use of the old tree stump as foreground and the light works so well. One of the best images of this castle I've seen in a long time!
