p.1 #1 · Linlithgow Palace


Linlithgow Palace sits on the shores of Linlithgow Loch in Central Scotland. The structure was built and added to over the years starting around 12th century. It was one of the principal residences of the monarchs of Scotland in the 15th and 16th centuries. When the Scottish monarchs left for England in 1603 the Palace was not used and, unfortunately it was ravaged with fire in 1746.

I took this shot at the weekend and was a bit disappointed with the way the Palace was lit. The illumination was only along one side, and not the most flattering side. Maybe it is poor maintenance of the lighting, maybe it is budget cuts, maybe it is a conscious decision to limit the lighting. It's just my opinion but I just would like to have seen it lit more. Perhaps I'll give them a call .......







Comments welcome.

David, nice shot looks like a very interesting place you captured it well. I am a big fan of Scotch so in turn also a big fan of Scottish landscapes. Great story to go with the shot. Good lock getting them to turn on the lights Regards, Dean

Hey David,

This is a pretty neat looking shot. It's cool that it is lit up at all, but I agree, a bit more lighting would really make it shine. Or... you just need to give Todd and Keith a call, I am sure they have enough portable lighting to light it up proper for you...

Hi, David. Wonderful composition. But, I do agree that some added lights would make this much better.

Cheers,

Neat shot, David. I love the blue hour mood along with the lit castle.
