Photographer's Note

Sometimes weather in Scotland can be disappointing in other way - by it's remarkable combination of sun-light and clouds texture. I was really amazed to see such a beautiful spectacle.

Taken from Dunure beach in South Ayrshire. The ruins you can see is Dunure Castle.

Some info about it :

The ruins of Dunure Castle lie in a quiet location overlooking Ayr Bay in the Firth of Clyde, on the west coast of Scotland. The original structure was built before the 13th century, but the remains of the castle are of a later period. The castle was the ancient seat of the Kennedys of Carrick, who were granted the lands in 1357. In 1509, David Kennedy was created 1st Earl of Cassillis. The 4th Earl of Cassillis, Gilbert Kennedy, entertained Mary from 4th to 7th August 1563 during her third progress, which took her to the west of the country.
