Tantallon Castle served as a great baronial residence for the Douglas family for 300 years.
The castle was built in the 1350's by William, 1st earl of Douglas, who had inherited the barony of North Berwick from his uncle, Sir James of Douglas, a close friend of Robert the Bruce. Following the death of his son James, the house heirless was divided in two with Tantallon passed to the 'Red' Douglases, earls of Angus.
I was somewhat disappointed when I arrived on location to shoot on this morning, fortunately the disappointment was short lived. There were thick storm clouds on the eastern horizon, preventing the beautiful early morning rays from lighting up this section of the stunning Teton Range. I waited and chatted with a couple other photographer's, the four of keeping a close eye on the towering range.
About 40 minutes after the sunrise, the rays finally broke through above the clouds and created the scene you see here. This was a memorable sunrise, easliy one of the most picturesque locations I've ever taken photos.
