Dublin City Wall

By Joline
Two sections of this great wall remain. This probably started as a Gaelic Ringfort on the high point of Dubhlinn (dubh = black in Irish), named for the Black Pool or sheltered harbor. Later the Vikings and later still the Normans enhanced and used this wall as a fortress.
Dubhlin has been inhabited since the Mesolithic age, about 7000 years.

Like V2 very much. Something not quite right with the colour of the grass in V1, possibly due to bright sunshine. Perhaps a crop to the bottom of the tree trunk would take away some of the glare. I think the gate image is superb with nice texture and hints of colour in the stone. Also the history is lesson is much appreciated Joline.

Wow 13th century walls - wonderful design and craftsmanship!
I like the sunny greens in grass and trees.
The Irish rose has an old fashioned charm.
