Swietne ujęcie! :clap: Oddaje to, jak zapamiętałem to miejsce w czasach dzieciństwa. Malownicze i trochę podszyte grozą, rodem z baśni..

Dzięki za słowa uznania! Zazdroszczę, że miałeś okazję znaleźć się tam w dzieciństwie. Na dziecku to miejsce musiało wywrzeć jeszcze większe i bardziej niesamowite wrażenie. Dobrze wiedzieć, że udało mi się to poniekąd oddać na zdjęciu.

Well that's a great combination of scarry and beautifull. Or maybe not exactly scarry, but surelly at least threatening... or something like that, I have little problem finding the right word. But stil great!

Thanks for sharing your opinion. Maybe thrilling is the right word. I think that this type of buildings were intended to make threat to potential enemies. That's why they were built in hard to reach places. This created excellent defensive capabilities.

I know about their defensive purposes, after all, i'm sort of fan on military history. Never considered the psychological impact of their look on an medieval man, though. Silly of me. You might be quite right that to people not acustomed to modern construction capabilities, such massive structure had to look rather intimidating :).

Thrilling might be the right word, in somewhat dark and dangerous sense.

After seeing your gallery, I can tell that you're definitely know a lot about military history. I'm certainly not an expert on this topic, but I'm glad that this photo is interesting for you. The psychological aspects of such constructions certainly played a big role in the Middle Ages.

Dzięki! :) Kiedy robię takie zdjęcia to staram się, żeby jak najmniej wskazywało na obecne czasy. To daje złudzenie podróży w czasie do przeszłości.
