The sun was in my back and small patches of blue were arriving but the sky over the castle was still grey when I arrived at Kenilworth Castle. So I used the outer circumstances to remove the sky completely and to create a focus on the castle whereas I still left some patches of brown on the path to emphasize the earthen surface.It might make a good desktop background, so if you like it feel free to rightclick and save it!

Ascending the kathar castle of montsegur in the French Pyrenees is very exhausting and takes a while, but the views along the way are magnificent, the castle is not very special, however, the village is remote and thus gives you a feeling of being lost in time…

After visiting Kildrummy, I made my way to other castles such as Huntly in Aberdeenshire. It is a ruin but still worth a visit because many fine stone carvings of the facade and the covings of the fireplaces still exist. THis photographic painting shows tha back of the castle with a place for distilling beer.

Not much is left of the once impressive castle in Newark-On-Trent, but it situated in a nice park, some half-timbered houses can still be found in the city.
