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

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 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.

Unlike that other one, very difficult to duplicate this one in the US mountain west :XD:  Beautifully composed shot, with the line of the mountain behind it....
