Balvaird Castle by Grant Glendinning

Very windy day at Balvaird Castle in Perthshire. I took a 15 second exposure to try give a sense of the wind and the speed of the cloud movement in this otherwise sunny and peaceful looking setting. Balvaird Castle near Newton of Balcanquhal, Perthshire was built in the late 1400s, it was built for Sir Andrew Murray, a younger son of the family of Murray of Tullibardine.

The Castle is in the care of Historic Scotland.

Canon 5d MKII and Canon 17-40mm f4.0 L lens
15 second exposure at f22, ISO 50. Polarisor, GND and a 6 stop ND filter used

I’m a photographer based in Glasgow, I’ve always loved taking images since getting my first Canon compact camera in the early 90’s. I started taking photography seriously in 2007 after purchasing my second DSLR and a few Canon lenses. My main subjects i’m passionate about photographing are: Landscape, Wildlife & Nature, Birds, Cityscape night and Architecture.
I like my photographs to look as natural as possible and only do basic post-processing in Canon’s RAW conversion software.
