Every now and then my little red camera surprises me and does exactly what I want it to.
Consibrough Castle is an English Heritage site, the visitors centre at the moment is a sort of wig-wamish construction which has huge, tilted glass windows facing the castle. The snow thawing on the roof was running down the glass in small rivers, on about the second click I got the picture I wanted with the auto-focus catching the moving water. The picture isn’t quite straight, of course the tilted glass meant the water looked as if it wasn’t running vertically down, but the horizon outside was way off so I tried again … and again, and again, but never mind, when I got home Photoshop came to the rescue and straightened the horizon slightly for me.
The visitor centre is about to get a huge overhaul. They’ve won a Heritage Lottery fund grant and work is due to begin in Septemer 2013, if I remember rightly, the site will be closed to the public until they re-open in April 2014 with a newly refurbished visitor centre and a few extras to the castle, exciting times for all involved.
For those of you who’d like a little more information about Conisbrough Castle, here’s the link for it on the “English Heritage” website and as Catterel said in her comment on the last post, “Wikipedia” has a very interesting article as well.
