Castle Warwick, Warwickshire, England by 


Warwick Castle is a medieval castle in Warwick, the county town of Warwickshire, England. It sits on a bend on the River Avon. The castle was built by William the Conqueror in 1068 within or adjacent to the Anglo-Saxon burh of Warwick. It was used as a fortification until the early 17th century, when Sir Fulke Greville converted it to a country house. It was owned by the Greville family, who became earls of Warwick in 1759, until 1978

Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at www.PixielatedPixels.com

    Mean, moody and magnificent, and only just down the road from my house
    Nice shot

  • What a lovely area in which to reside, lucky you. Very different from my New York digs I think. What I’ve seen of Warwickshire has been totally gorgeous, even in the rain! Very nice of you to drop in and leave this great comment. Cheers.

    Beautiful capture…England is gorgeous and Warrick castle is so cool…did you get to Arundel?

  • I have visited and passed Arundel many times, check out this shot My family live in Brighton where I was born and raised not too far from Arundel. I love that castle and the whole surrounding area. If you walk around the grounds around the back past the wetlands center there is a great pub where you can sit outside and eat great food. I think it’s called the Black Rabbit. I have had good fish and chips in the shop near the bridge on the way into the village too! Here is a shot of the cathedral at Arundel taken over the village roof tops. Thank you for your great comment. Cheers.

    Yes very moody indeed! Like your view-point for this one – Warwick, one of my favourite castles, both for the architecture and its amazing history!

  • I have to thank Mother Nature for the wonderful rainy day we had when I visited! Blue skies would never have been as much fun and hair dries eventually! Thank you very much for the comment Sarah. Cheers.
