Lovely capture. Just love the footprints in the frost that provide the lead-in. Great idea to put a link in to the info about the tower.

Have to agree with all above comments: the footprints in the frosted grass leading up to the Tower and with the visitors keeking over the parapet add so much to this winter visit.

For once the footprints make some sense, but you should never walk where you might want to photograph, it's easy to mess up an image you see later. Never seen a fort built at the bpttom of a hill, I wonder why? lol. Wink
