Seen from afar…yonder distant castle

Firstly, in the Dordogne. A castle (unknown) from the window of a castle (Commarque) across the valley….

Castle from a castle

….and another castle from a castle, this time in the Languedoc

Lastours. View out from the Quertinheux ramparts (to Tour Régine, and furthest away, Cabaret

…and here are all four of the castles of Lastours on their rocky outcrop, seen from afar (well, across the valley)

Chateaux de Lastours, Quertinheux is the bottom one, closest to camera

  1. I love castles! We visited the Cathar castles at Lastours when staying near Carcassonne, some years ago.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Jackie

    Great choices.

  3. I like how in the first two photos you framed the view onto the other castles. Very impressive, Sue!

      Many thanks…I do like to use framing when the opportunity arises – always have done, right back to film days. The first image was taken in the ’90s, on film

  4. Multiple castles – wonderful. I like the castle through castle shots, Sue – great framing

  5. Love the framing and yes a good frame can make all the difference, ha ha wish my film days photos looked like you first photo:)

  6. My eyes are caught as much by the pines as by the ruins, but “scene through arches” is always a winner. A great collection

    • Sue

      Many thanks, Meg…I thoroughly enjoyed that day, struggled up to the first castle, knowing that I would never get the chance again

  7. Like these Sue – especially the last one 🙂
