Of Castles

I was reminded today of a trip I took last year with my parents, to Scotland, to celebrate my Dad's retirement. It was an amazing trip; I was so glad to have been able to spend time exploring the Scottish towns and countryside with my very awesome parents. We had a great time, saw many castles, and so I thought I'd share a couple of photos here.

I have long been interested in the way light can inject a space with a sense of being sacred. When I turned the corner into this second picture, I was struck by the play of the light through the stained glass, and how the space seemed so full of spirit. Certainly, it has a historical feel, yet there is and was more.
