Dunnottar Castle in Black & White

This photo was taken on an early November morning about two miles (3 km) south of Stonehaven. Dunnottar Castle is a ruined fortress located upon a rocky headland and the surviving buildings are largely of the 15th – 16th centuries. The castle plaid an important role in the history of Scotland, because of the location: it overlooked the shipping lanes to northern Scotland and on the opposite it controlled land access to the coastal south.

In the present-day, the castle was the venue of the movie „Hamlet“ with Mel Gibson and Glenn Close.

I took 3 different exposures (-2, 0, +2) and processed the picture with Photomatix Pro and Photoshop.
