Weekly Photo Challenge – ‘Down’


19th february 2012
 

D  o  w  N!

 This view is from the castle Keep, it was quite a trek to get to it, and as you can see it is a hell of a trek back down all those small slippery stone steps. Where is ‘Health and Safety’ or a ‘Lift’ / ‘Elevator’ (to my American friends) when you want one.
 

Now to go back Down

 D  O  W  N  !       Cliff Rail lift, apparently it is said to be the shortest rail way in the world. This actually travels directly up a cliff side, and on the top a very nice cafe greets you where you can enjoy a nice sandwich. The view is quite spectacular, looking out across the sea.
 

Now to go Back Down 2

                                                       
All the above is of my own work, Please enjoy and express your views…

  1. Love the angle of these shots. Did you also take pictures of the view over looking the sea? Great challenge choice. Do you take pictures as a business as well?

    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!

  3. Gerry, you always come up with such cool photos. There’s another bucket list thing I want to do…tour a castle. I could spend days exploring that monster. Thanks for sharing this.

    • Thank you so much for your kind words, and you could spend a good long day here,exploring.

      • I’ll bet. I have always loved the romance of castles. The buildings they ‘call’ castles in America don’t hold a candle to your wondrous structures.

        Comment by orples | February 20, 2012

      • Lots of romance and treachery plus lots of other nasty things. LOL :) Thanks for visit..

  5. Down, but certainly not a downer! Makes one feel quite uppity, in fact.

  7. I’d like to go up and down those castle steps. That’s a perfect idea for ‘down’. Your photos are so sharp (especially compared to mine).

  12. Great shot :) That looks like one hard climb!

    • It is, I do have pictures to show, and there is a walkway..

      Comment by cobbies69 | February 20, 2012 | Reply

  13. Two great interpretations of down. The first one especially is fascinating – even without a lift. There are no such architectural treasures in my corner of the planet. Thank you for sharing :)

    • Yes a lift would ruin it lol ;) thank you.

  14. Great view for the topic at hand. Love the photos, but the first one is my favorite because of the perspective.

  17. i haven’t seen an actual castle myself (disneyland castles are not counted) and that view in the first photo is really charming!

    • We have plenty here in UK, but I also like the Disney ones, they don’t have the death related to them, just love and dreams and smiles.
      Thankyou…

  25. That caught ‘down’ allright. Where I live it’s too flat to get a sense of ‘down’. Hence, the halibut. Fishing is a happy memory for a lot of kids!

    • Thank you for visiting, and reminding me, I have a few fishing memories. ;)

    Two for one! Bravo! Bellissimo!

  40. Absolutely stunning photos! You have a great eye for composition.

    On your music. As a vocalist, manager, and producer of local bands I know how hard it is sometimes to stay empowered. Never put your instrument down, never quiet that voice that needs to be heard. There is always an audience of appreciation to be found, even if its just a couple pair of ears. You never know who it is that is listening

    By the way, Thank you Kind sir for finding your way to my barefoot blog. I am most grateful for your time.
