Kilchurn Castle

Article text
Kilchurn Castle occupies a stunning location at the head of Loch Awe on the west coast of Scotland. I arrived at dawn in the hope of golden light on the castle from the rising sun behind me. Instead I was treated to a subtle interplay of pink clouds and mist enveloping the snow-clad mountains beyond the castle, all perfectly reflected in the still waters of the loch. By retracting the legs of my tripod I mounted the camera low down, enabling the inclusion of some rocks to provide the missing foreground ingredient.
