Caerlaverock Landscape

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.

View of the Tungabhadra

View of the Tungabhadra

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.
