Ardvreck Castle...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...another from this spot I thought this one deserved an airing as well. I think the person who placed the boulders in the water was a photographer or an artist, such beautiful precision.

Go on Dougie, tell the truth. You spent ages placing those stones didn't you? Wink Wink Wink

This is a wee smasher pal.

Love it!!!

Like stepping stones they lead to the castle Doug. Well composed, a difficult subject just one tower. A feel for the location. Ron.
Kin did it and ran away, Honest.

Looks a very photogenic place Doug, I'm planning my Easter trip to Scotland at the minute, I need to draw up a list?
Assynt is a photographers paradise given decent weather John.

Another lovely piece of work and those rocks really do add that finishing touch to the scene.

The sweeping curve of the shore, those stones leading in towards the castle, the little spit of land projecting into the water further round, the castle itself, and of course the colour - all play second fiddle to the superb rippled reflection which for me is the glory of this image.

Lovely composition Dougie, like those curves and the stonework in the old tower. The stones in the water seen to have positioned by size as well, maybe to create the illusion of perspective or are they just natural Smile

You mean you didn't place those rocks yourself! Excellent composition makes the image a real pleasure to view

Someone has certainly been very thoughtful in placing the stones! The Almighty as Artist?

Yes, those must have been placed. I like that light. LOL - And what is that blue stuff in the sky? I might have to go there to see what it is like!

Saw some today down the coast, Ayrshire, Dumfries and Galloway but not a lot. The path has just been rebuilt and I'm sure somebody had some fun, see how many mugs see them?
28 Jan 2008 5:57PM
Can't add anything to what's been said but I will agree with stunning composition.

This really catches the eye with its fascinating sweep Dougie. Really nice composition.

You have done it again, Dougie, you have made me want to be somewhere other than where I am.
