Monochrome Weekly

I'm posting another castle for what was Monochrome Monday but is now known as Monochrome Weekly. Head over there if you'd like to join in or just to have a look at more black and white shots.



This is perhaps not the classic shot of Eileen Donan Castle but it's where I was at the time.

I love this photo!! I never cease to be amazed at photos of very old structures. We don't see things like that here in the States/

One day I may have to join in on the Monochromania too!

Very nice shot. I don't mind it not being the classic shot, it looks pretty classic to me.

Aileni said...

Classic enough - it is a good composition.

Kitty said...

This was a good angle to pick - I like seeing the road into it, and imagining it's the 1500s, and walking into the castle...

I like this road leading to the castle. Its rounded stone parapets are really styled.

RockstarJen said...

That bridge/road seems to be the focal point, which is truly beautiful. Love to see such history.

Suldog said...

Oh, I love old castles, and especially those that still have the accoutrements such as walkways and roads leading to them. Thanks!

Lovely angle of a castle that looks quite formidable.

Daryl said...

Works for me. I like this perspective and your attitude!

I love the castle from this angle. It looks great in mono. Havn't been there for about 4 years, must go again soon, thanks for reminding me.

Beautiful capture, you do have some wonderful old castles and history up there...:-)

I would have loved to be standing there - so imposing and impressive compared to what we see on this side of the pond.

Linda said...

Very moody and skirl of the pipes-ish! Have never been - it's amazing how there are bits of our small country that one can miss out.

I love castles and in mono they look fantastic. Great shot. :-)

Bim said...

Great shot - I don't know from which side it's properly classic :) but you've got it from just the right perspective I think.

BJ Roan said...

Great composition. Perfect for mono.

Great shot. I would love to visit a castle one of these days. What history lies behind those walls.
