Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond … Lismore Castle, Co. Waterford, Ireland


Lismore Castle

A couple of springs ago Lloyd and I spent three memorable weeks in beautiful Ireland. One of our last stops was dramatic Lismore Castle.

I’ve always been fiendishly interested in history and loved visiting castles, and while we couldn’t actually go inside this old fortress we did purchase tickets to wander its extensive and beautifully kept grounds.

Naturally, I had camera in hand.

When I captured this moment I was standing on a small stone stairway rising to ground level. My focal point was, or at least I thought it was, Lloyd disappearing into the garden. But as you can see it isn’t as simple as that.

The moss-covered stone wall to the right, the ground cover and and narrow dirt path in the centre, and Lloyd wandering off into the shrubs to the left create a surreal frame for the haunting, ancient castle looming beyond.

I’m thrilled with the effect.

And I think it fits in beautifully with this week’s challenge theme. What lies beyond makes the image so much more interesting.

Thanks for visiting …

Dorothy 🙂
