Warwick Castle

It's funny how sometimes it takes moving away from something to really appreciate it... I used to pass by this view almost every day back at school and I guess I was just so used to it that I never really took much notice. Being back in the area I realise just what a picturesque, idyllic English view it is.

The image comes from the second of two mornings back in autumn trying to finally get a photograph of the castle in decent light. The first morning was a total blanket of grey cloud but on the second our luck was better and we were fortunate that there were actually rowers keen to be out on the river so early on a Sunday!

I agree, its sometimes easy to forget how beautiful something is that you see daily - this is a cracker Adam, the rower in the foreground really makes this for me! :)

You would think the seeming anachronism of the scull might jar the viewer out of the beauty of the image. Instead that little detail adds so much.

I guess I'm so used to the view it would've felt a little boring to me without that extra little something to lift it :)

Beauty of a shot mate, I've been back to the bridge many times. Something always beats me [link]

....mind you have't since getting my better camera.

The bridge is the only place I've found to get a decent distant shot of the great castle...you got an insider tips? ;)

nice twilight glow to your shot there Mark :)

no insider tips, it's pretty restrictive where you can actually shoot from isn't it? I do have an idea for a shot from a boat though, a bit nearer to the castle. I'm a member of the boat club just down on the right and think I'm still entitled to borrow a boat... just have to get someone else to row it while I take pictures or it could all end in tears!
