Draculas Lair

This is Slains castle in Scotland, and it is said that this was the castle that inspired Stoker when he was writing Dracula.

This shot was taken at close to midnight, and it was very dark. The only light was from the moon and it was deadly quite, the only sound was the gentle washing of the ocean against the rocks below. When suddenly I heard a loud squeak right above my head, and I looked up and saw a bat fly right above me, and really close too! It gave me a big fright, but it got me thinking that maybe it was Dracula trying to scare me off.
