Wordless Wednesday – If you go down to the woods today




  1. It looks like a tiny castle, made for children to play in. Or it could be part of a very large castle, from a different angle. Or even a church…Got me thinking, Sue.
    I have been into some woods today too, and found those tree growths I mentioned. Post to follow.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      It is a castle, Pete! Actually a mock medieval gateway built in the late 18th century over the ruins of the original…. But on a beautiful sunny day like today, quite atmospheric…
      I actually have never knowingly seen this before, I just walked up an alley and some steps, curious to see what lay beyond, and there it was!

  2. How gorgeous, Sue. I was looking for Teddy Bears having a picnic. 🙂

  3. It looks very welcoming, as though it’s from a fairy tale.

  4. ohh it tells a story! I love castles especially ruined ones!

  5. What an interesting find, I bet its even more atmospheric at dusk.

  6. I did, I did go down to the woods today, but it wasn’t folly at all. 🙂


  7. Your discovery of this is a good fable for life: always go along that alley and up those steps! How delighted you must have been to stumble across such an unexpected building. I like all aspects of the composition of this photo. I’m beginning to be a fan of central placement. Rule of thirds would’ve lost you that lovely framing.

    • Sue

      Oh, I always like to see what’s around the next corner, up the next alley! Oh, and stuff the rule of thirds….well, I do use it at times, but at the end of the day, what suits your subject? And I quite often crop to square, in which case RoT doesn’t work……

  8. Wow, that’s a pretty good argument for getting out of the house and taking a look around!

  9. What I like most about this is the way that the trees (silver birch?) match the colour of the stone. And the contrast with that blue sky.

  10. What a lovely looking ruin!

Over to you...
