Duffus Castle, Scottish Highlands, served as a fortress-residence for over five hundred years. During that time the place underwent great changes, none more radical than the replacement of the original earth-and-timber castle by one of stone and lime.
When the first castle was built about AD 1150, it was among the foremost defensible strongholds in Scotland. By the time of its abandonment in 1705, the once mighty medieval castle was little more than a decaying fragment of history, completely unsuited as a residence of nobility.

Great lighting. With this kind of composition, where you include the sun, it's so easy to have large areas totally burnt out. Your timing was perfect to get the starburst at the bottom.
