Eilean Donan Castle - Scotland

Not much words needed for this one. Probably the most photographed castle in Scotland and considering the location and the lights it's no wonder a lot of people stand here in making this shot. I stayed 4 days in this area hoping for the light i had in mind, but rain and clouds was all i got and the sunset i had in mind never showed up. But the first evening it was dry and i waited for 2 hours till this finally hit my sensor. Wind was down, water was calm and the tide that was coming in created for me the perfect reflection...sometimes you're lucky ;-)

Title comes from the movie Highlander and they used this castle as film location with music from Queen.
