Dramatic Dunure Castle

This a haunt from my childhood - I was doing seeing my parents an we had a wee run down the Ayreshire coast. Dunure and Turnberry were my too stops. A right blast from the past. Anyway I climbed out at great risk on to these rocks to get this rather dramatic angle and the sun graced me with it's presence - enjoy

  1. This one jumped out of the page at me and I love it, Scott! 🙂 Reminds me a little of Dunstanburgh on the Northumberland coastline. I’m overdue a visit.

  2. Sorry Scott, but this composition doesn’t work for me. I think it’s because the rock in the foreground is too dominant and it’s tip touches the horizon and the headland of the castle, right in the centre of the image.

    1. I get that critique Mark – my thinking was I loved the yellow rock and was trying to use that to lead to the castle. At the same time I was trying to include Ailsa Craig but that was not happening with a broken angle. I would have liked a gap between the rock and the castle but with my precarious position it simply wasn’t happening. This was a recce run for later in the year to see if there was value in a run down this coast again. I think I will return as I loved Dunure harbour but just couldn’t figure out how to shoot it. I value your honest feedback as I believe that is how we develop – all the best Scott

    1. 😀 I tried to include Ailsa Craig as a separate sillouette but a broken ankle would have been the price . Yes the sky was like a rolling herring bone.
