Hermitage Castle is a semi-ruined castle in the border region of Scotland. It is under the care of Historic Scotland. The Castle has a reputation, both from its history and its appearance, as one of the most sinister and atmospheric in Scotland.

Really like your shot of the old castle. Just went out to Google & read a little about it and it has a very colorful and like you said, a sinister history.

I like the b&w rendering in your second image, the mood is dark.

I like the first image more, only because you did a wonderful job of capturing the clouds and sky, along with some foreground.


just a few of my thoughts...

Wow, that last photo really brings out it's reputation as a sinister place - SPOOKY!!! It's a great Halloween shot.
