Wall of Fame Winner • Nick Silverstein
Castle Stalker, Scotland • Canon 5DSr, Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L, f/18, 5sec, ISO 100

Living in Scotland there is an abundance of fantastic locations to visit. However, I live very close to the very south of Scotland, so getting time to visit all of these places is quite hard – usually an overnight trip is required which is easier said than done with a 7 year old.

Last weekend I decided to take a flying visit to somewhere new (11 hour round trip) as I had a free afternoon. Always wanted to visit this castle so off I went. Having seen lots of images of this location, I had an idea of what I wanted to achieve. It didn't look too promising for a nice sunset on arrival, but I capture a few images while waiting on the right time. Eventually, the light began to change and I decided on a long exposure to smooth out the water and the slow moving clouds.

I had to use a 70-200mm lens to get the castle filling the frame. I used a 10 stop filter with a graduated ND filter. Overall, this image out of all of the images taken, made the very long round trip worthwhile.
