Golden Castle by Dee-T Golden Castle by Dee-T
Ardvreck Castle
Scotland

During the last days of our trip to Scotland last year, we based ourselves at Ullapool SYHA. After a day shooting around the Lochinver area (Old man of Stoer), we had planned to shoot sunset on Loch Assynt with Ardvreck Castle being the primary interest. As it turned out, the late afternoon rain turned into a golden sunset resulting in this amazing rainbow of which I have posted one previous image. ( I ended up snapping quite a few from this spot due to the duration and intensity of the rainbow). This one suffers from jpeg compression more so that the others for some reason but I like its composition more than the dead central one I think.

They are the coolest, but like doubles they higher it goes the lighter it is.

Where can I see the others ?? And I haven't a clue as to what the post Beneath this is ON...Oh well!!!, back to the PHOTO= Its a Great Shot, tones etc are really contrasty, and as it's for the Web I don't suppose the compression is going to get that much more rectified..

the other one you posted, Dylan, is my favorite,
because of its capture of the full double rainbow.
but, i still think, if there is indeed an earth goddess,
she continually smiles upon your work.
