A good photograph is knowing where to stand - Ansel Adams

Castles and Ancient Places

There is something compelling about the ancient. There's no more intriguing a challenge than to capture centuries of history in 1/50th of a second. A castle was often more than a defensive structure; it was a projection of power and wealth. As such, there is nearly always a story waiting to be told behind the parapets.

Ballycarberry Castle, Ireland. Ireland seems to have more than it's fair share of atmospheric and historic castles. Ballycarberry is certainly amongst my favorites; with its tumbling towers and overgrown ivy, it certainly leaves a lasting impression on visitors
