As I mentioned earlier, I had an entire weekend for visiting some National Trust places in the UK. This one was taken here. Apart from visiting the house and the gardens, there are walks all around the place with interesting views and things. These ruins are part of a fake ruined castle built in 1770 for decorative reasons. It looks great in those hills. Given that trees don’t seem to be aware of the spring this year, the shadows of the branches are well visible, and used that to direct a bit the viewer’s attention. I tried a black and white processing, but looked to me very dramatic. A blue sky here shouldn’t be wasted!
