  5. A little bit haunting, but oh, the dreams I could conjure with that to look at before sleep!

  6. I wouldn't be surprised if Heathcliffe were brooding in those shadows.

  8. Now that's a unique view! When you say 'castle' you are not joking. Is it haunted?

  9. Right out of my all time favorite childhood (and adulthood!) novel - Jane Eyre...

  10. Hello:
    What a wonderfully dramatic image.

  11. Very Gothic (in the traditional sense) and darkly romantic.

  13. Beautiful contrast of light and darkness. While the sky still remains faintly bright and orange, the darkness is fallen on the castle and the ground. I guess wind is blowing and clouds are moving.

    I’d like to keep up with you, too. Thank you.

  18. Your very own castle - you are so lucky. (Hope it's not haunted - or if it is, the ghosts are benign)

  19. One of the things that is so fascinating about the countryside in the UK is that you live amongst these ruins. They are normal to you. It's as if history is relentlessly looking over your shoulder, which is not a bad thing. Beautiful and sobering.

  20. Definitely more dramatic than the cow barn beyond MY hedge.

  21. I would love to visit Europe
    with my camera. My world
    is younger, but so very vast
    here in the Americas. Have you
    checked out the 100 shots I
    have posted on my blog
    with added twitku? I sort of
    borrowed the notion from
    you, and it is joyful for me.

  22. lovely peek over the hedge!

  23. Hmmm, scary. I'm hoping the neighbours aren't too noisy? But I'm sure in daylight this is a fabulous view.

  24. I can't believe that, in our long acquaintanceship, you've never invited me to move in with you.

Comments are good, I like to know what you think of my posts. I know you'll keep it civil.
