    The ruins of this old castle are right next to the train station I use to get to work with. I couldn't resist a photo the other morning whilst it was foggy and my train was late ;)

    geez... you just couldn't resist, huh? :wink:

    I think I'd be jumping for joy if I even had a chance at a picture like that, much less coming out with one! it looks pretty fantastic!

    Awesome. Very atmospheric. It has a very slight sepia feel to it.

    The title of this jumped out at me... this is local for me, I remember visiting the ruins on a school trip many many years ago. Looks like I should go back now with my camera; I'd be happy to capture it half as well as you've done here. :thumbup:

    Oh Mohain, what a beautiful pic ... I love how it looks like sepia, how the sun is brighter in the reflection, and just the whole moody feel. Great eye for a shot!

    Thanks for the comments :)

    I know it doesn't look much like a castle, there is a Motte & Bailey you cant see from this angle. The cottage is for the groundskeeper.

    Thanks for the link, Mohain. I don't think I'd ever heard the terms 'motte and bailey' before.

    Very "Pleasing" image. Tranquil and moody. Well composed and executed.
