Grey Morning Over Tarbert.

By Tooma
Up early for this shot with the last of the three castles which once guarded the Kintyre village of Tarbert and its harbour, almost in silhouette against the morning sky. This is a triple exposure HDR shot, which was probably not needed, but I wanted to use the feature, my camera being newish at the time.

There are two lochs in view; the nearest is East Loch Tarbert, which opens into the much larger sea loch, Loch Fyne, to the right and distance.

@taggart - Yes, they were all lived in, Jenn. Thanks. We have a framed copy of an old engraving showing one of the other castles which was sited closer to the main village. The area was prone to raids from Vikings at one time, and at another time, from the English King's navy - before the Union of the Crowns when we became The United Kingdom.

A lovely image. One feels like they are there in the last light of evening.

I like how there is just a touch of the morning sky beginning to appear on the horizon. Well handled considering the low lighting.
