In between the madness of fulfilling orders, editing portrait work, and getting ready for the Bucktown Arts Fest and Lakeview East Festival of the Arts (two weeks apart… aaack!) I have been trying to take some time for myself and go through more of my photographs from Scotland and Ireland. Today’s Photo of the Day, “Fairytale,” is the latest from those little “editing breaks” I have been taking.
The photograph is of the beautiful Dunrobin Castle, in Sutherland in the Highlands area of Scotland. The castle is the seat of the Countess Sutherland and the clan Sutherland. Featured in Stanley Kubrick’s 1975 movie, “Barry Lydon” it is said to be haunted and, today, is used for falconry demonstrations in the amazing gardens surrounding the castle.
Oh how I miss Scotland; the castles, the scenic vistas, the people. I can’t wait until my next trip back to capture more photographs like this one and explore even more.
