Photographer's Note

Following my previous posting, today I’m showing you an closer view of Crac des Chevaliers castle. This is the largest and best preserved of the Crusader castles in the area, and as you can see from this shot some renovations have been made to give us an even better idea of how this vast building would have appeared during its heyday in the twelfth century. One can spend many hours exploring the ruins, and inside there is an extensive network of corridors and vaulted rooms. For anyone planning to visit, a good pair of shoes and a torch is recommended!

As I took this shot it had just stopped raining but the sky was still gloomy and I did not stand for long on the ramparts as it was extremely windy. The wide angle lens has caused some distortion which I have tried to use in my favour to exaggerate the perspective of the castle walls.
