Lovel shot of the Castle! Did it get a mention in the Country file competition?

Thanks :) Nope, I think the castle made it a bit too well known and not quite nature-y enough!

That is so beautiful, you have caught so many great elements in this photo; the castle's silouhette, the sun beams, the bird, the ripple on the water... so atmospheric. I'd love to go to Scotland, it's such a breathtaking country.

Great silhouette of the castle,but the seagull and that shaft of light adds another dynamic to an already impressive image.

Theres a weekly program in the UK called countryfile, as soon as I heard their latest photo comp was themed 'a moment of magic', this shot sprung to mind so I gave it a little editing before printing off and sending in my entry :)
