Thursday’s Special: Pick a Word in August Y3

Paula has given us a few words to chose from…I’m going for Fortified and Submerged

A couple of images for Fortified – an old ruined castle in North Wales

Rhuddlan castle

and a Maginot line fort

Decaying Maginot fort

I did consider I should include an image of people tucking in to a good meal….they would have been fortified against th rigours of the day, but didn’t have an image!

Next is submerged, and you have to use your imagination here. This is a village that was submerged when a dam was built. You can only see the church tower when the dam is full, but when we were there the waters were very low, and the village wasn’t submerged:

  1. I don’t know that castle, Sue, but it’s a nice shot in black and white. 🙂 🙂

  2. I like the use of B&W on those first two shots. How sad about the village!


  3. I knew you would be ready with ‘Fortified’, Sue. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Amazing that village is still standing. How long had it been submerged?

  5. I wonder who decides when that a village should be flooded, I think there’s one near to Bristol.

  6. Spiffing entry, Sue. I am so intrigued to visit that village wherever it is 🙂
