Kenilworth Castle is a medieval castle located in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, England, which was founded in the 1120s.

Interestingly, although it looks like a deserted ruin in the middle of nowhere in this picture, it’s actually quite a vibrant tourist site managed by the English Heritage group, only about 15 minutes off one of the busiest motorways (M40) in the midlands.

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    Wow! It does look isolated and frozen in time. Those clouds are wonderful and make a superb background for the castle!

  • Thanks Johanne, it’s not a “popping” IR shot, but I like it :-)

    I LOVE the way those clouds provide the most dramatic background to the castle.
    1/400th sec ….. I have GOT to get a second body for conversion!

  • Yes, I noticed your 245 sec LOL. It does make a huge difference having a converted camera (well, one that works anyhow…)
