At Night we have the Light

Eilean Donan Castle, Scotland | Floodlit Heritage After Dark
This is Eilean Donan castle which lies on the banks of Loch Duich in the Western Highlands of Scotland.

I used my waders to get into the rising water for a lower angle on the shot to bring out the reflection to better effect. This is my favourite time for night photography - the 'blue hour' affect about 30 minutes after sunset where the challenge is to balance the artificial illumination with the ambient natural light levels.
