This shot was taken with a Canon AE1 35mm camera about 20 years ago and scanned into the computer. Then I tweaked it a little in Photoshop Elements 5

High on top of Carn Brea (700 feet above sea level) you will find Carn Brea Castle which looks out at some stunning views of the surrounding countryside of Cornwall. Redruth, Brea, Carnkie and Camborne are a few of the towns near by.

The Castle itself can be traced back to 1379. It is a stone twin towered fortress, built by the Bassett family and is inside the ramparts of the Iron Age hill fort. It was probably built has a hunting lodge, or as a chapel to St Michael. It has been restored and extended over the years, and today has the look of a modern folly, rather than a medieval fort. The views from this spot are splendid, and you can see for miles on a bright evening.

*It’s NOT the camera which makes a photographer good, it’s only the photographer.

The same applies when; buying a Nikon doesn’t make you a photographer, it makes you a Nikon owner.

Our creative juices flow and we capture the moment.

I hope you like the work I have captured and thank you so much for looking today.

    Tony , its a gorgeous view… the clouds look a little posterised, and it looks like the cameras main focal point is the rocks in the foreground…. what resolution did you scan at?
