Under Grey Skies by Nelleke Under Grey Skies by Nelleke
Eilean Donan Castle :)



:boing: :boing: :boing:
-----
Location: Scotland.
Post processing: I upped the contrast and darkened the bottom and top.


My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please visit this link for the rules nelleke.deviantart.com/journal…

I was thinking at first this was Urquart, but it's not

I think there are some locations where it is difficult to NOT get a beautiful shot... but you've really nailed it here.  Really like the shadowed background with the threat of rain (pretty common in Scotland, eh?), but as a backdrop for a wonderfully crisp shot of the castle, with just a hint of sunlight.  You managed to keep most of the distracting "modern" stuff out of the frame.  Like the proportions between land/sky/castle/river.

something about looking at stone structures that you know are hundreds of years old.  I just got back from a month in the Czech, and seeing some of the buildings there up close and in person just does something to me.
