That Castle - my version

By Tynnwrlluniau  
Sorry. I know, but it had to be done...several times in fact Grin Thanks for the wonderful response to my last two offerings. Almost a personal best on the votes front. Hope this one doesn't disappoint. It had been raining heavily but the showers stopped and a glimpse of low sun tried to break through, while three fellow-tourists crammed themselves into the MacRae's doorway for shelter (not really visible at this size, sorry)

Many thanks Pete for the EC - totally unexpected but great to receive.
It is indeed a well-photographed location so nothing new here. I was glad that they light it up in the evening though. Smile

You've put your own stamp on this Alun - I especially love the detail in the water in the foregound and the warm light on the castle. Many congrats on the EC.
22 Apr 2012 8:38PM
Thanks a lot. Anna - I was lucky to get a few images because the heavens opened most of the time I was there. However, when the light broke through I was generally at a photogenic location such as this.
Thanks Paul and Rob and a big thanks to sarah for her GEA Smile

Many thanks. It's gratifying that having got up pre-dawn every morning and stayed out until after sundown I managed to bag a few between downpours Smile

Hard not to stop here one of Scotland's postcard places and we all have to do our take on it. The light played ball for you too.

A truly stunning shot. The title on the Eilian is spelt wrong - Eilean should be which is right in the tags

24 Apr 2012 10:47PM
Confound it! Thanks Ian as a Welsh speaker my own natural pronunciation and spelling makes me want to stick an 'i' which gives nan 'ee' sound in English where the e in Eilean should be. I'll change it although I may have to upload it as a version. Many thanks and apologies to my cousins in the far north Grin

Thanks Dougie and Kaz - appreciate your comments,
