Yet another beautiful castle capture, Ann!! They just don't build them like that here in the US!;-) #288385

Elisabeth A. Gay 8/3/2005 10:48:42 AM

Thanks Goshka, well they had centuries of practice in Scotland :) - this one was started in the 14th century, and had several wings added on with different generations of the family. #1672407

Ann, I thought I had commented on this wonderful image, but somehow my comment seems to be no where!!!
So here I go again...
Wonderful image Ann, I am really enjoying all the photos from your trip, what an awesome castle! Beautiful! #1672489

Shelly A. Van Camp 8/3/2005 11:21:35 AM

Ann, love this!!! Beautiful and thanks for sharing your trip :) #1672581

Mary Clarke 8/3/2005 12:24:50 PM

Another lovely photo Ann. I think you and I saw very different sides to Scotland but it seems to be that all sides sparkle! #1672749

Jenny Bosmans 8/3/2005 1:38:37 PM

Love the framing on this beautiful view, Ann!! Glamis is a great castle indeed! Do they still have peacocks walking around there? #1672996

Elisabeth A. Gay 8/3/2005 1:44:31 PM

Thanks Debbie, Shelly, Mary and Jenny -No I didn't see any peacocks. Both times that I have visited this castle they were holding their annual vintage car show, though, with crowds of people there. I had to clone out a few in this photo! #1673014

Ermanno Radice 8/3/2005 1:45:50 PM

Another wonderful shot, love those image of the castle, Elisabeth!! #1673016

Linda D. Lester 8/3/2005 2:44:41 PM

You just had to have an awesome trip! I love your shots...Great shot, Elisabeth! #1673216

William C. Raco 8/3/2005 3:55:10 PM

Such a beautiful castle!
Wonderful construction and design along with your excellent composition.
Question: If one has a wedding there, do they still not allow indoor photos?

Tammy Scott 8/3/2005 5:15:56 PM

Very lovey scenic shot, Elisabeth! #1673682

Elisabeth A. Gay 8/3/2005 5:25:30 PM

Thank you Ermanno, Linda, Bill & Terry - it really is a beautiful place, incredible and priceless works of art, decor and history. I didn't think to ask about photos being taken of a wedding party! I think they use the photo ban as a means to make more money, as they sell a very nice glossy brochure with pictures of the interior in it. #1673725

Elisabeth A. Gay 8/3/2005 5:26:30 PM

And thank you too Tammy, you posted just as I was writing my response! #1673731

Dan J. Holm 8/3/2005 5:27:36 PM

Wonderful image, Ann!!! #1680962

Susie Peek-Swint 8/5/2005 2:23:14 PM

Lovely composition on this Ann ~ what a place to grow up in... surely must have a few resident ghosts ~ lol!

I had the same thought as Bill on the photo taking ~ does seem a little strange as it is hired out for weddings? #1682361

Kathleen K. Parker 8/5/2005 3:23:42 PM

Wonderful place and image, Annie!!!

Description

F/8, s1/125, iso100
Another view of Glamis, this time in colour, the late Queen Mother's childhood home. We were not allowed to take photos inside unfortunately, wish I could have had a picture of the main dining room, it was awesome! Incredible ceilings with the family crests, a huge ornate fireplace, family portraits, and an enormous silver galleon as the centrepiece on the table - they rent the room out for weddings so if anyone is planning to get married....:)
