Artist's Description

I’ve been inspired by Dave Warren’s beautiful HDR work. Seeing the lovely brickworks of his, I decided to give it a try. See Dave Warren’s work here:

Though I can’t follow Dave higher than to his ankles, I decided to give a couple of my foggy ruin shots a re-processing. They are from the ruins of Hammershus. I only have one exposure, in RAW that is, so I’ve made 6 or 7 different copies of it and merged these in PS.

Hammershus, which is placed on the northern tip of this island, and is one of the best preserved medieval castle ruins in northern Europe, was built around 1250 by the archbishop of Lund, which today is situated in Sweden. This part of Sweden belonged to Denmark then.
In the Middle Ages, the castle was totally impregnable, and since there was lots of food and always water in the pond, even though it is placed 74 metres above sea level, a long siege could be handled.
In the wars agaist the Swedes the castle was lost in 1645. Later, it was recaptured by the Danish king, but in 1658 it went wrong again. The king lost the war against the Swedes, and had to give up the whole of southern Sweden and Bornholm to the Swedish king.
After a year, the Swedish commandant, Printzensköld, was killed by rebels, the castle was captured and the whole island handed over to the Danish king. Otherwise we should still belong to Sweden.

Lots of things have changed, one of the constants, though, is that we are still rebellious on this island. At least they think so in the rest of the country.

This shot was made on a foggy day without tourists.
