Covenanter

By CliffGreen  
Another from the "re-enactor" event at Fort George near Inverness, last weekend.

I was drawn to this chap because his hair and beard made him look particularly authentic. He is dressed in the uniform of Fraser's Dragoons who came from the local area. They were "covenanters" who opposed changes to the Scottish church proposed by Charles I. They were allies of the Parliamentarians in the English Civil War.

Many thanks to those who commented and voted on my previous upload "Ferocious Frankie" and to John Bushell for his user award.

He does look the part, Cliff, as if he's just stepped from the pages of history. With his face in shadow you have captured him in such fine detail with no blown highlights.

Super 'period' portrait.

He does look rather austere. Well captured, Cliff.

Great custom and he has a good face for an authentic look.

Excellent capture, his facial expression is just right for the part.

Lost in his character certainly looks the part in that nice light.
