Yet another dull, wet and overcast day with more snow on the hills but just rain down at sea level. Once again it cleared up a bit in the afternoon so I popped along to Dornie to Eilean Donan Castle, to take advantage of the empty car park and absent crowds. I had hoped for more dramatic light but the weather looked like it was closing in again so I didn't hang around too long and didn't really get much in the way of any really decent shots. The image above is my favourite of the day, shot with a 1 stop ND grad filter to balance the exposure of the sky and the foreground. The following two shots are similar but from different angles and/or zoomed in a bit closer on the castle.
