Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I must apologise for my absence which was partly due to a short holiday but mainly due to acquiring a nasty virus on my computer, which totally closed down the system! After long and, I might say, dedicated work by my husband, the computer is up and running again and most of my folders have been retrieved! This is a stern reminder to 'BACK-UP' files!

My post today shows the motte of Lincoln Castle. After the Norman Invasion of Britain, many motte and bailey castles were erected all over the land. (For anyone unfamiliar with the terms motte and bailey, I have included an Internet link here, which explains the terms simply.) It is a very steep climb to the keep at the top and it is easy to see how it helped the security of the inmates. I have tried to use a pov which emphasises the difficulty of access, to invaders.
I was both pleased and surprised by its good state of repair.

Many thanks for stopping by, Bev.
Feedback is welcome on any aspect of the shot.
