Dunnottar Morning

Stonehaven Aberdeenshire

I’m very fortunate to come from a very beautiful part of the country, and whenever I return to that area, I always take a walk up by Dunnottar Castle. This summer, I had bad jet lag and woke at 4:30am to discover a thick fog blanketing the town. I put my Sony a6000 and a GorillaPod in a running backpack and ran up to the castle and was luck enough to catch some of the mist still hanging around. This shot was taken at f11 to try to get the foreground and castle both in focus. I set the camera at 100 ISO, which resulted in a shutter speed of 1/3 of a second, due to the low light. I hope it captures the dramatic atmosphere of this beautiful place…
