Ardvreck Castle
Scotland

Marianne and I have finally made it home 24 hours ago. Along the theme of home, I remember the saying that my home is my castle. Fittingly, the best image of a castle I can remember taking on the trip was one of the shots that I took of Ardvreck castle on Loch Assynt late in our trip to Scotland. That evening, I was waiting for sunset to happen but just before, there were showers and glowing light in the right combination to give this amazing rainbow (double at times) in the opposite direction to sunset. One of the many occasions where looking the other way pays dividends I think.

Wonderful composition. I love how the distant hills place the rainbow in the middle-ground rather than the back as is often the case.

This is a stunning photo and one in a million. I have visited Scotland and the country is beautiful and it's easy to see how legends were created. What part of Scotland is this? If this were my photo I would have it made to a larger size and frame it. Great job.

This has been printed :) it's Loch Assynt in the Northwest - we were based at Ullapool at the time

When I saw your reply about Ullapool it brought back memories. I took a boat trip from there to the Isle of Lewis. I never though there are remote places like this left.
