Scene of facts and fiction

By javam    
Back to Dunnottar today, this time a slightly different angle and slightly lighter than the one I processed whilst still in Pitlochry.

This was from the Team HORNET dawn run on the Saturday of the meet.

The reason for the title is that the castles history is varied and more recently cinematic.

In 1296 William Wallace is said to have incinerated captured english soldiers in the church, although when Mel Gibson actually went to the castle, it was to play Hamlet in 1990.

Off some food now, will catch up after.

As always, thanks for looking.

Great use of light and shade, particularly like the water.

Great light on this Neil. Shame that far headland hasn't eroded away a bit more, as it'd give some separation for the majestic mound of the castle seeing it surrounded by water.
Cheers, Goggz
