And yet another photo from Dunnottar Castle, this time one from inside the walls.
This was one of my most favorite places to visit as a kid, I am sure it drove my parents nuts as I could not get enough of the place. The ruins, the magnificence of all sparked my imagination and I could almost “see” what it must have been like in its heyday.
Today, there is little left of the majestic buildings other than ruined and crumbling walls. The nicely kept greens make for a stark contrast – manicured lawns vs. broken brick walls.
As you can see, I have again applied some textures to the background, after initially blending three images as an HDR process. The dramatic sky, the evenly exposed buildings are all hallmarks of HDR processing. I also like how these images present themselves as Black & White, but I will save that for another post.
