Finally I am back on track for Re-work Wednesday. This week we are re-visiting the ruins of Kilteel Castle, which I first shot back in 2012. You can read more about the history of the Castle and view the original series of shots HERE.
Kilteel was a former Geraldine stronghold built in the thirteenth century by Maurice Fitzgerald for the Knights Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem. The site upon which the castle was built was once a monastic settlement. It was a bright sunny afternoon when I first shot this image so unfortunately there was little detail available in the sky. That aside I still like the mono version. As with most of the sites I now visit, I tend to shoot them exclusively in B&W as I think the lack of colour not only brings out more detail in the structures, but also adds a certain mood or atmosphere which suits these places perfectly.
So that’s it for this weeks Re-work, hopefully to see I will be back on track and see you all next Wednesday for another image taken from the archives.
