Culzean Castle (Vol. 2)

By RonnieAG
Three more shots taken on midsummer's day, 2010, at the National Trust for Scotland's flagship property of Culzean Castle and grounds.
Vol. 3 will follow in a day or two's time.

V 1: A more traditional view of the Castle (than in Vol. 1) but captured in soft warm evening light and in shadow from across the Fountain Court Garden.
V 2: Herbaceous border within the extensive Walled Garden in the Estate.
V 3: One of many varieties of peony rose to be seen in the peony rose border, again within the Walled Garden. (V 3 is worth viewing LARGE if you can be bothered and have time)

Many thanks to all who showed interest in Culzean Castle (Vol. 1).....I am most appreciative of votes given and comments added.

V's 1 & 2 are superb compositions, Ronnie, very well captured. The colour and detail in V.3 is excellent, a trio of fine images. Carol

Three crackers Ronnie, took your advice and looked at V3 large, well worth it, an excellent shot, great detail and a lovely colour. The other two are not bad either.
All the best.

These are a delight! My favourite view of the castle always, the borders are just so full of wonderful colour and the image so well composed, while V3 is one gorgeous looking Peony flower! Really couldn't decide between. Love them all!
