Kilchurn Castle, Loch Awe, Scotland
Fuji X-E2, Fujinon 16-55mm, f/16, 1sec, ISO 200

The ruins of Kilchurn Castle stand at the north eastern end of Loch Awe, in the Argyll and Bute area of Scotland and date back to the 15th century. It is a popular location for photographers so when we arrived, despite the early hour, we were not surprised to see several cars parked and a few photographers making their way down to the loch-side.

The overnight forecast was for a cold, clear night with barely a breath of wind, so conditions seemed perfect for a sunrise shoot and perhaps even a chance of mist. However, we were initially a little disappointed to find large parts of the loch frozen by the low overnight temperatures which spoiled what would have been mirror glass reflections on the perfectly still water.

After a little scouting around though, we found a sheltered corner that had remained clear of ice and by lowering the tripod as low as I dared above the shallow water, it was possible to achieve a composition with the all desired reflections of the castle and snow capped hills.

Despite the clear sky, when we arrived a few clouds appeared just as the sun started to rise and turned a lovely shade of pink.

This was my favourite landscape picture this month and I wish to congratulate the photographer for uploading it. This gorgeous picture can be viewed in High Definition in the latest issue of the magazine
