One of the public duties battalions or incremental companies is responsible for providing the guard at Windsor Castle. This chap appears to have found the perfect position to avoid confrontation - he must be at least 100 meters away from the fence leading down the Long Walk from Windsor Castle. (It took a 35mm equiv of a 600mm lens to get even this close!)

This is a very good photo of Windsor Castle, considering you used the zoom from so far away!
I am useless with zooms! I really like the POV with the little guard keeping watch over this great castle.
Everything is very sharp, even the guard in his sentry box! And I love the texture of the stones , on the wall and around the windows and gates!
When I first saw the miniature, I thought it was the Tower of London!
Lots of similarities in the texture of the stones, I think. Both started under William the Conqueror, weren't they?
Thanks for sharing!
