Eilean Donan Castle

Eilean Donan Castle - The Classic View
Eilean Donan Castle is a picturesque Scottish icon and very popular with tourists during the daytime.

This image was taken after sunset in late March. I used a slightly longer focal length to frame the castle and bridge, and was lucky to see relatively still waters and snow on the distant peaks.

A long exposure was inevitable at this time of the night. It was a tricky scene to expose effectively given the brightness of the floodlights illuminating the castle.

Canon 40D and EF 70-200 f/4L:
