Act Two, Scene Three

Warkworth Castle

Warkworth Castle

Our local castle looks good at this time of the year.  Built around 1070 Warkworth was a setting in some of Shakespeare’s Parts 1 and 2 of Henry IV, described as “this worm-eaten hold of ragged stone,” the description is probably a little more apt today as it is hardly liveable any more. It is possible to walk around the inside of the castle.

I’ve been meaning to get photos of the daffodils here for the last few years but never had the opportunity, so I took a little trip there after de-icing my car from my early morning beach trip. (See my previous post.) I had checked http://www.sollumis.com/ the previous evening to check the sun direction. This was three images shot at 14mm stitched together vertically. The inevitable converging verticals of the castle wall were fixed using manual lens correction in Lightroom.
