Rich, Tracey and I had spent a day car touring and looking at floods. We headed back towards our digs but diverted just long enough to visit this old fortress at Kingussie on Speyside.

The Barracks holds an imposing position under normal conditions, but under lowering skies with flood water around and the watery light of a setting sun it was really atmospheric.

That looks an amazing place - all the more so due to your good fortune with the lighting, your choice of composition and your timing!
Find myself wishing that you had lightened the top and shadows of the buildings just a fraction more although it obviously reflects the lighting at the time. The blues of the sky and the yellow of the slope work very well together.

A very imposing view and an exciting picture. My step father was a scottish Ruthven so I have a person interest as well.

So many thanks everyone, really good to hear from you all.

Floods, yes we had them. The road between Kingussie and Aviemore was blocked as was the railway line at Dalwhinnie. This was due to torrential warm rain which melted all the gorgeous snow from from the mountains (where we had been climbing two days previously!) and put all streams into full spate. Spoilt our climbing but provided super views.

Beat wishes everyone.

George.
