Photographer's Note

This is Dunollie castle, just on the north side of the harbor in Oban, Scotland. Oban is famous for it's Scotch whisky.

The castle sets on the site of a 7th century fort. This structure was built in the 15th century by the MacDougall clan.

I got this picture late one afternoon when I was returning from a day trip to the isles of Staffa and Iona. I arrived back at the harbor right at the "golden hour". And how golden it was. Perhaps it's the high lattitude of Scotland, but the golden orange light that afternoon was the kind of rare and beautiful sun that nearly brings tears to a photographer's eyes.
