As scenic as any scenery you’ll ever see: the ruins of Dunnottar Castle near Aberdeen, Scotland. If I was a different kind of photographing tourist, the kind who researches carefully, and arises several hours before dawn to get to places by sunrise, I’d have really amazing photos of this place. I confess that this trip had much more of a “oh, lets sleep in, then stop for a delicious brunch” travel style, interspersed with “hey, look, there’s a thing let’s visit it” moments. But heck, this castle is an amazing place to wander around and imagine the everyday lives of long-ago people who lived here, and the waves of invading armies that they fought off – until they didn’t.
