Pevensey Castle (1) .. The Entry by 


Located at Pevensey on the southern coast of England, I took this set of images when I was there in 2011.
.
Originally built by the Romans, but taking shape as we know it in 1042 by the occupation of King Harold II who established a strong point there, improving fortifications by digging ditches within the walls of the Roman fort.
It was then given to Robert, Count of Mortain (half-brother to William the Conqueror) shortly after the Norman Conquest… Click HERE if you want to read the whole history…

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    I know some will say I’m vertically impaired ’cause I love so much the Low-Angle shot but this one is kinda cute ;-) Great job Larry for this another nice one.

  • Thanks so much my friend, for being honest.
    .
    Because the bridge slopes down to the right, it gives off a feel of the horizon line not being straight.
    But it is… it’s as you see it.
    And the low camera angle was to hope for the grass in the foreground…
    I’m pleased with the way it turned out… ( nothing as good as your’s though )

    Great shot, Larry – with super framing of the distant hills through the arch made by the bridge !!

  • Thank you my dear friend…… Glad you like it.
    Stay safe.

    Terrific capture Larry – we’ll have to get an entrance like that to our house !

  • Oh’,,,,, wouldn’t that be something…..
    .
    When I bought the house that I now have ( 20 years ) and we first moved in, there was an above ground pool in the back yard…. Well, the pool is now gone, but I retained the above ground decking and placed a spoked wheel sunken herb garden where the pool used to be, and built a “Draw Bridge” between the door at the rear of the house and the decking around the garden.
    It is lowered and raised whenever you want to walk between the house and the decking, to be able to sit and have a cool drink on a balmy night……. Something a bit different. ?

    Larry, were we standing on the same spot?? No but close, in mine you can see a little fence behind the bridge on the left so I was standing a few feet to the left of you. Of course a great shot my friend, after all great minds think alike :-)

  • Spooky….
    This is about the 4th time that another member of RB from another part of the world has stood in about the exact same spot and clicked a similar image…
    I think that you and I would get on very well together…?
    .
    So far I have met up with about 7 RB members and have hit it off with every one that I have met.
    I hope to meet up with Roy Massicks in New Zealand at the end of Jan.
    RB gives me an excuse to travel and meet new people which is what my wife and I just love to do.
    .
    Stay safe my friend and I look forward to viewing more of your wonderful work…
