I took this on a blazing hot day at Chirk Castle. The internal shadows seem softer to me on a day when there is strong sunlight. Outside the bright light was harder to work with.
Thanks for looking.
Hope the sun continues to shine for a wedding that we are attending this afternoon.
Have a great weekend everyone and thank you for your recent clicks, comments and encouragement SmileSmileSmile

Wonderful shadows cast onto that very old stonework, Helen, a grand capture for Saturday shadows. Carol

Wonderful shadows, shapes and textures. Dare I suggest (yes, honest, it is me doing this) that this would be a great subject for a black and white and a sepia and white version?
