The story behind the image

About 15 km south of Dumfries in Scotland you will find Caerlaverock Castle, a sturdy water castle with a triangular floor plan and a rich history that dates back to the 13th century. This makes it pretty unique, even in the land of the castles.

It was 6.30 pm, so we came just a little too late to visit the interior of the castle. However, the sun was already beginning to show the warm glow of the late afternoon, throwing long shadows that were well captured by the slide film. Putting the main entrance into the center underlines the strength of the building.

I love this photo.
