Belinda Carlisle was right...

...heaven is a place on earth.

A traditional [35mm SLR] shot of Eilean Donan castle in the Scottish Highlands.

I took this one about four years ago between Christmas and New year, and have scanned the 6x4 print in - hence the poorer quality. If I can find the neg then I will get a better quality scan done. But for now you can comment on this one.

another excellent shot of the castle,one of my favourite locations, completely different to a shot in the gallery a short while ago . this is colourful and sharp i think your scanner has done a good job.interesting sky ,great lighting on the castle, very good reflection and snow on top of the mountains may i say is icing on the cake.alan

Thank you Alan for your very pleasing comments. As you've probably gathered in my description - this is my favourite place in the whole world, and also the most difficult location to get the photo I am completely happy with, this one isn't far off but I think I have a better one in me - just need to get up there again.

Lovely photo of Plockton in your varied & colourful portfolio too - well deserving of the Editor's choice award. I find Plockton to be another gorgeous place and in such close proximity 'my Eilean'.

I must dig out my negatives and post them up...

Three comments, two clicks on a real Sutton!
We all started on low scale as it seems!
Lovely shot Paul, like the white highland tops at the back and the fantastic reflection.
