  1. Castles are some of the most scenic objects to photograph and mysterious to visit. I like the perspective of this photo, since I’d never think to take it from below the hill. I’d be up there, having the building in full view for my shot, making it much more boring than the way you did it. And, why am I thinking about a squat toilet when looking at this castle? 🙂

    1. I would have gone up that hill, Liesbet, but I was already running late for my dental appointment (where I was getting a cracked front tooth repaired). The tooth won over the castle…this time.
      Squatting toilets? I wonder where you got that idea from? 😂 But, yes, I’m guessing that this castle had one of those.

  2. I love the wide variety of castles we have too. From those intended to serve and protect the local community (like Dryslwyn) to those built to impose power and terror (mostly Norman or by Edward 1). And they all have a different atmosphere.

    1. I only wish I had gone inside, Rob. I was on my way to the dentist to get a broken front tooth fixed when I took the picture. The castle closes to the public from Oct 1st for the winter season. It opens again on April 1st. I guess we’ll have to wait to find out what’s inside.

  3. Marvelous photo, Hugh. I wish I had more time to keep up with all the social media sites — although I don’t do enough photography to sneeze at. But thanks for reminding me of what’s out there. 🙂 Hugs.

  4. Now that’s the sort of hill I’d think worth climbing! When I was in my teens and early twenties, I used to love “mooding-out” in castles and high-up places, where I’d sit think solitary thoughts, day-dreaming, doodling in my sketch pad or writing what I believed were profound poems. Thanks, Hugh, for bringing all that back to me with your photo.
