you do take pretty pictures of castle ruins.
Wow…gorgeous. I love old castles and taking pictures of architecture. There is such a grace and elegance about old buildings! Excellent shot.
Thanks for stopping by to check out the shots of my pre-teen drama queens!

I like seeing your pictures of these ancient structures as I will probably not see them in person. Thank you
Looks like Rapunzel should be hanging out of that window!
My photo is posted, so hope you’ll drop by!
That is just beautiful – where is it?
I bet lots of stories are from there
Thanks for coming! I took this picture while walking along the battlements of Lincoln Castle, Lincoln, England. For once, this castle is mostly intact and with the addition of a Victorian block was used as a prison and a place of execution. It also still has a working court building nearby (a Georgian building I believe) and has connections to Eleanor. One of the 12 crosses was situated on Cross o Cliff on the hill and a fragment can be seen in the grounds of the castle. You can also see Lincoln Cathedral, where her body rested from the Castle, and on the outside of the cathedral there is a statue of Edward and Eleanor. Lastly, Eleanor viscera lie here in a reproduction of the original medieval tomb.
I love photos of old castles, and one of my dreams is to visit some of them one day. Thanks for showing us this photo and for the explanation of it too.
I’m inviting everyone over to my place… tea is on. Hope you can make it )
Impressive! Thanks for sharing!
There are a lot of beautiful castles in England. I have seen quite a few at the South East coast.
I love old stone walls..I always want to touch them…they ooze history.
Such a beautiful castle picture! You are very blessed to live in that part of the world ~ so much history and beauty!! Blessings from Okinawa, Japan!
I love the continuing series of castles.
I am also enjoying the series!
Your castles are magnificent!
Happy WW! I Hope you’ll come visit mine!
