At the north-east limit of village Şoimoş (today part of Lipova city, Arad county, Romania), on the hill named Cioaca Tăutului, on the right side of Mureş river, you can find the ruins of maybe the most beautiful Middle Ages fortress from Romania.

after the grand and vast view you presented in your previous picture, here's a close view that focuses on the mysterious and charming ruins. I like the upward point of view, the depth and the sharpness of your description. The light is very vivid and pleasant, the colours are natural, bright and appealing. A very inviting view. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

This is a fantastic image for me to see, it is exactly this kind of castle that got me interested in photograpy, as I discovered similar buildings in Ireland. And it's a bigger bonus, as it is a dream of mine to someday visit Romania, so now I have another place to add to my list of places I want to see there. You chose a magical view on this place giving a great of scale and a lovely sense of the hill leading up to the place. I like this a lot, thanks for sharing such a fascinating post.

I like the ruins because they give your imagination a very good field to play on. I always try to picture how the place looked like in its finest times. This one probably had witnessed plenty of events.
Nicely taken with natural colors and good sharpness. Well proportioned framing.
Thanks for sharing

Very picturesque presentation of the ruins. This phot brings me back to my childhood when I have read the books about adventures, pirates and ancient warriors.
Excellent view, nice vivid colors! TFS!
