I will never get tired of this view. I remember the first time I went to see Dunnottar Castle. The long drive up the East Coast of Scotland. At one point I was sure I had missed it. I remember pulling over at the side of the road and walking through some fields to get to the coast line and looking North and there it was, just a few hundred yards from me. But my, what a foreboding look it had. I had read about the castle's history; the conflict that it had seen and experienced, it's place in Scottish history, and run-ins with Vikings. I remember wandering around the grounds and running my hands over the ancient brickwork. Looking out to sea and wondering what it must have been like to see friend or foe on the horizon.
And this is what photography means to me. To go and see locations such as this. But not to merely take an image but to experience as much of it as possible. Whether it is a person or a place, to be able to feel emotion when being in the presence of that person or place is something that I will never tire of.
