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.
17 Jan 2012 11:13AM
the foot prints make this one for sure well spotted and captured ...are the footsteps your's Barbara looks like you have a fair grip of the ground Wink

Thanks for the link.
Just what I need on a bleak,cold,miserable morning to cheer me up,
to read about all these killings,suicides and hangings !!
Good shot though.
17 Jan 2012 12:07PM
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

Gives me quite a chill to think about it, Barbara.
I like the tones and the vignetting.

Quite a tale to tell, this tower. Mind, it has been there so long there will be hundreds I suppose. The footprints do a grand job here, along with the modest vignette.
17 Jan 2012 6:14PM
Great shot of Clifford’s Tower Barbara.
Love the foot prints in the frost providing a lead.
I like the use of the vignette too. Smile

Twice in my life I have had panic attacks Barbara, and the first one was up top of this tower many years ago - no idea why though. Very nicely captured with the footprints in the frost. Moira

So, did you have to make the footprints yourself, or were there willing serfs to do the job for you, Barbara?Wink

Good subdued colours and misty , chilly look to this one.
