Castle Wraith

By hwatt  
Castle Stalker, Argyl & Bute, Scotland.

Whilst out with a small band of photographers, we took a second trip out to Castle Stalker but instead of taking a beach front location we opted instead for the rather restricted view given by the hillside that overlooks it. The view is fabulous at anytime but cables, poles and trees obstruct the view except for a very small number of viewpoints. The group clustered together quite necessarily like a coop full of roosting hens and we were treated to an utterly spectacular sunset. This was taken prior to reaching peak colour and shows some detail in the castle itself and more to the point a delicious band of mist rising off a field - what atmosphere.

Love all the extra sky to give that empty feeling that we locals prize so much!

This must be one of the best views of Castle Stalker that I have seen in a long time. The colours of the setting day are making a fantastic backdrop. There used to be a lay-bye at the top of the hill but I think it was removed as so many vehicles were stopping for a shot like this. Very well captured, Ian.

Unmistakably one of yours, the quality of the light and the soft colours shouts out your name.
