Castle Sinclair, Caithness, Scotland

A quite unusual view of Castle Sinclair. This aspect was almost forced upon me by the presence of scaffolding on the old building. After negotiating a steep and fairly awkward descent down to the rocks on the coast I found clusters of nodding pink thrift and lichen stained rock which made for a wonderful foreground but perhaps the most pleasing extra was the sudden burst of spray shooting up at the end of a gully back lit by sunlight.
