Photographer's Note

Hello everyone! Just back from Scotland ... a somewhat rainy stay (but well, it is to be expected, right?) But great nonetheless. Let's start right away with a classic, I'd say even an top-classic but classics have their good sides too ... Eilean Donan deserves its title of 'most photographed castle in Scotland'. It must be said that the site is really wonderful. The castle is located on an island at the junction of three lochs and surrounded by beautiful mountains. Built in mid 13th century and rebuilt over the centuries, it reflects the feudal history of Scotland.

We had hardly arrived when it started to rain and it made shooting more difficult. I managed, however, -in between furious wipes of the filters- to get some. Here is a first converted into B & W, others will follow ... We made a fairly quick stop but I think one should stay several days as this castle is so photogenic ... the views are many and varied, add to this blue hours, sunsets, mist, etc ... ... and there are ways to fill up memory cards !!!... but I'm getting carried away, it would require a who-wants-to-be-a-millionaire type of budget to do all that!
