Taken from my previous visit on my way to the Isle of Skye on June of this year. Just after 8-00am on a very overcast and wet morning, the view from just inside the main gate looking over the bridge to the castle. My thanks once again to everyone for your kind comments on my previous images, they are always very much appreciated. Bill.

Excellent depth to this image using the causeway as a lead in, and so attractive to have captured the Castle's reflection in the water.

An extremely impressive composition which captures ones attention from the start. A beautiful setting, in which you have captured its magnificence in this brilliant piece.
