"Culzean Castle"

By RonnieAG
A view of Culzean Castle from yesterday afternoon.
Culzean Castle and Country Park is the National Trust for Scotland's flagship property, lying on the Ayrshire coast south of Ayr and just north of Turnberry (famous for it's golf course).
The Estate belonged to the Kennedy family *** for generations but they gifted it to the National Trust in 1945 but with a stipulation that a flat there being given to General Dwight D. Eisenhower for his use in recognition of his role as Supreme Allied Commander during WW 11.

My thanks to all who commented on Let There be Light.

Ronnie.

{***David Kennedy (1734-1792), the 10th. Earl of Cassilis never married and the baronetcy became extinct on his death}

A magnificent looking property, Ronnie, and you have chosen a comp and pov that do it justice.
The local stone used in its construction is very photogenic.
Judging by all those chimneys, they must employ a full-time sweep!

a nicely composed shot Ronnie using the tree and branches to break up the sky...there is quite an array of chimney pots to be seen must have a lot of stff to get all those fires burning. A nice clean capture full of detail.

I never knew it belonged to the Kennedy's Ronnie !!
I knew old man Joe played golf,so probably being near Turnberry had something to do with it.
Good shot.

It is the lovely enchanted garden that makes this shot so interesting. I took a shot of the castle many years ago ( when I found out that Ayr is warmer than Oostend Smile) and Ronnie I used my Filed camera and a tripod and all that, = but produced a boring architectural shot. You see I lined up to much.
And you got it positively charming.
