This is the ruins of the 13th century Elgin Cathedral in northern Scotland. It is one of my favorite medieval sites because centuries-old gravestones surround the cathedral and add mood and the mystery to this place. We started shooting with a light drizzle that quickly cleared, and the bright overcast was perfect to bring out the rich colors and textures of the ancient structures. I used a 16-35mm lens for this shot, and that made the foreground disproportionately large compared to the background. I use the same technique when shooting landscapes and even costumed models in Venice. It's a great way to add depth and perspective to an image. My settings were 1/400, f/14, and 1600 ISO, and I handheld the shot. I replaced the sky, of course, for added drama.
