Such a lovely set, well minus all that rust in my case!! V1 is my favourite though closely followed by V2, a view I got used to seeing in my 3 years living in the area many moons ago! Love this wonderful castle and its grounds. So looking forward to those promised Peony images to come!!

All very good well composed images and scenes. Terrific.
My personal favourite here is the 2nd, with its spread of contrasting but complimentary red and blue palettes.

Superior set of images Ronnie - I have a strong preference for V3 though - maybe because I am in a macro mode at the moment - but I love the colours and textures and composition of this - the fact that the whole frame is full of detail I find visually exciting - love it.

Good day Ronnie, thanks so much for your well wishes and continued encouragement and support. Much appreciated. These a super shots Ronnie, love them all but really am attracted to V1. I just have a thing for old castles, sunsets and yellow roses. As always you manage to cheer me up with your wonderful pictures and your cheery thoughts.

Not just rusty Ronnie,but crusty too !! Makes for a good range of tones.Good colours and light in your other two also.
Good selection.
The Castle looks great from down here Ronnie, I'd have been in the water boots or not, that's agreat reflection, well done my friend.

Hope you enjoyed the day down my way - been a glorious spell of weather - hard to beat this area when the sun shines. Different angle on the castle works well.

Superb series, Ronnie. The one with Arran is gorgeous, more so perhaps for me as I used to live near Carradale on Kintyre, and saw the island from the eastern side. A wonderful series and thanks for sharing with us.

V1 is a beautiful scene which you've composed so superbly. It looks a wonderful place to visit on a summers day. I bet you were glad Mikbee didn't accompany you on this trip as you'd have probably spent most of the day poking around on the beach looking for rust and various other debris!
26 Jun 2010 8:39PM
3 great images Ronnie. V1 & 2 are my favs. great views.
