Mugdock Castle

Mugdock Castle, Scotland.  Canon EOS 40D, f/8, 1/1000 s, ISO 320, 24-105@32 mm.
In a continuation of the castle theme, here is Mugdock Castle, a 13th-century castle located in Mugdock Country Park near Glasgow.  I love the solar panels on top of the main tower. I wonder if they’re original?

A funny thing about this photo is that although it looks like it may have been taken near sunset, it was actually taken during the mid-afternoon on a fairly overcast day.  I decided to experiment with the split-toning tab in Camera RAW to see if I could produce a sunset-esque feel.  After giving the highlights a organge tint and the shadows a dark blue tint, this is the final result.
