This is mind-blowing! What a great shot of the old castle emerging from the forest trees while perched on the side of a cliff. Have you ever been inside of the castle?

Karl Demetz said...

Yes, one time, many years ago...

It looks like it's perched in a spot that is very hard to reach. Beautiful shot.

This castle looks easily defensible sitting on top of those cliffs, but getting groceries must be a challenge. Beautiful photo, but it looks like the trees in the garden may need some pruning.
