An autumn view taken at Caerlaverock Castle when we visited last year with the grandchildren. The castle is unusual for being triangular in plan and originally it stood on the coast but the sea has now retreated across mud flats.
This picture has been included in a selection going forward for a regional inter club competition though if I were the judge I would be sure to point out the tree branches that partially obscure the castle. Removing them in photoshop would be fiddly but possible, but my justification would be on the grounds of being creatively less obvious, as well as incompetence.
This scene of a young woman sweeping the floor was taken at Hampi Bazaar. The avenue of buildings date from the 14th or 15th centuries.
The area around this part of the Indian State of Karnataka is quite strange with many of the hills made up of piles of huge boulders. Through it runs the Tungabhadra River and as this is an historical site you can explore amazing temples and the ruins of the Vijayanagara Empire that came into being in about 1336.
I think that this is probably the last picture for the time being that was taken at the Victorian Town at the Ironbridge Gorge Museum and it shows a portrait of the harness maker in his workshop.
The Victorian Town is a brilliant venue for photography, so put it on your list of places to visit. The Ironbridge Gorge Museum is close to Telford in Shropshire and the area was the cradle of the Industrial Revolution in England.
Another photo from a visit to the Blists Hill open air museum of the Ironbridge Gorge, in Shropshire, England.
This museum is highly recommended and is great for photography.
A wintry scene in Kirkcudbright, (by the way, that’s pronounced Ker-coo-bree) with MacClellans Castle standing tall against all that white stuff.
