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.
These old trees caught my eye on a recent visit to Caerlaverock Castle in Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland.
Here is our granddaughter Ava, looking older than her seven years, at Caerlaverock Castle where she dressed up in a period costume for her portrait.
The trees are just gaining their spring foliage in this view taken at Caerlaverock Castle in Dumfries & Galloway.
Caerlaverock Castle is about 15 miles south of Dumfries and we made an Easter time visit with our grandchildren Ethan and Ava. We spent a very interesting 4 hours here exploring the castle and grounds, and Ava added to her holiday castle project, while Ethan appropriately bought a bow and arrow. Toby the dog explored the place with his nose.
