7-day Nature Photo Challenge – Day 3

Madame Sherris Castle Stairs

A mix of man and nature today. This was once part of a large home and now only the stonework remains. This was shot in October 2014.

    Look at that setting… breathtaking.
    A medieval feeling comes over me. I just know a princess is there somewhere looking for her prince!

        It’s a special place and the color of the trees in fall made it perfect. You must have some great old castles in Romania that would be good for shoots. Different than this but still great for shoots.

        Shoots are forbidden at Dracula’s Castle? Are you kidding me? OMG! Can you shoot outside?
        Once, I toured a salt mine near Krakow Poland and they let you take photos but charged an extra fee. But you could not take photos inside of Wawel Castle in Krakow. Crazy. =P

        They sell postcards and other photos with the castle so they don’t let you to take photos. I don’t know if you can take photos near the castle.

        I’d rather pay a bit more to make my own photos. We tried to take a few sneaky photos inside of Wawel, but they did not come out well. Buckingham Palace also did not let us take photos. =P
        I looked on Google. Dracula’s Castle is about 3 hours from you. Have you visited?

        When I was little. I don’t remember too much. 3 hours on the map :)) The streets are tight and many people go to mountains in the weekend. To be there is easy, let’s say. But to comeback it’s …. It can take you 5-6-7 hours. It sucks with the car. You’d rather go there with the train.

    That’s a really nice one that is mate. It’s got just about everything going for it including the verticals of the trees cutting down behind the arches/love the softness of the leaves down the steps and of course dazzling colour 🙂

    That’s a lovely shot. I like the way you’ve framed the staircase, the way it curves through the scene, drawing the eye. The balance of light and shade is good, as well. Isn’t it fantastic, the way nature reclaims the things we leave behind?
