This weeks image for the Monochrome Madness Challenge comes all the way from Leighlinbridge in County Carlow. And yes it is called Black Castle, not to be mistaken for the Black Castle from Game of Thrones, but equally fascinating. I have found myself continuously shooting religious sites for quite a while now, and to be honest I am growing tired from it. Dont get me wrong I do enjoy shooting these places, but my real passion lies with Castles and Neolithic sites. They have a special appeal for me which I cant explain. So consider this weeks image a sneak-peak of things to come. It is now my mission to hunt down more of these sites that really appeal to me.
I took this particular shot from across the river Barrow, which shows both the Castle and the Bridge for which it was built to protect. Sadly the skies were not particularly favourable for shooting, so this image required some work in RAW to recover as much detail as possible. So that’s it for this weeks contribution, you can as always check out the rest of this weeks MMC images which will go live some time later today over on Leanne Cole’s Blog, depending on your time zone. Every week you will find contributions from from photographers around the globe. So whether you are looking for inspiration or have a bit of a thing for black & white photography lie I do, you know were to find it. 🙂
