Was in Scotland last week, shot some lovely stuff (well, I like it) and this is just one of those lovely images.
Although the island of Eilean Donan has been a fortified site for at least 800 years, the present building largely dates from the early 20th century. Today's castle, which rose from the ruins of its predecessor, was re-built between 1912 and 1932 by Lieutenant Colonel John MacRae-Gilstrap.
I was actually on a Hebridean Birlinn when I took this shot. Its a replica of a Hebridean mid sized ship. More info available from here:-
Lord of hthe Isles
I hope its ok to put a link to their site, if its a problem, then I apologise.
I processed the image in Phase1, with a little tinkering in Photoshop. I have adjusted the exposure, a little saturation and contrast boost, and removed some distracting telephone poles etc.
Any and all comments are very welcome.
Thanks for looking.
