Great tyro 2020-05-14 3:43

Hello Bev,

Two very fine photographs and a most interesting note about this castle and how it is now being cared for by the local community. How nice is that!

It is indeed somewhat strange that the gatehouse remains in what appears to be remarkably good condition while the remainder of the castle is in ruins. But the gatehouse looks to be a massive and almost impregnable structure - perhaps the other parts of the defences and walls were less secure and succumbed more easily to the onslaughts of marauding invaders?

Your main picture is most attractive: the weather looks glorious, the sky is blue and a couple of people whose clothing and accoutrements are all red decided at the perfect moment to place themselves in just the right location to afford you some delightful reflections in the pond!

And your workshop image is a fine closer view of the gatehouse though, curiously, the light appears somewhat duller and cooler than in your main picture.


Kind Regards,

Thank you for your warm critique, John.

Yes , the lighting does look quite different in the w/s.
If you look, there are quite a few clouds about and the lighting did change as we explored the place.
I think we were looking for a pub, but were unsuccessful! So I took some photographs going one way and more on our return!

Keep safe,
Bev :-)
