The fortress was first conquered by the Ottomans in 1388/1389, and retaken in 1416/1417 after a brief Wallachian rule (it belonged to Wallachia's Prince Mircea the Elder). It was conquered by Sultan Mehmet I in 1417 (who renamed it "o Yeni Sale"). Due to the new political situation and the development of sand spits that hampered trade, the fortress gradually decayed, and was finally abandoned around the end of the 15th century.

Hello Alexandru ,
La composition est parfaite . MAis ce qui est le plus frappant , est le contraste entre l'herbe et le château superbement éclairés , et le ciel sombre en fond de décor .

a stunning and atmospheric shot of this magnificent castle. I love the strong colours and the dramatic light which is so well managed. Composed and executed perfectly it is a striking image and presentation. Excellent!
Enjoy your weekend - Brian.

Tot ti-a iesit bine la poza asta, incadrare, sharp, contrast. Culoarea cerului nu prea ma convinge mai ales ca stiu ca nu era asa, insa contrastul cu iarba da foarte bine.
Tetrales bahtalo :)
