Sandstone window

By alansdottir  
Beeston Castle sits atop an outlier of the sandstone ridge that runs across this part of Cheshire. There has been a settlement here for centuries, an easily defendable position. From here you can see the Peak District in the east and the Welsh hills in the west. North, you can see the southern limits of the urban/industrial development that stretches from Liverpool to Manchester.

The stone of which the castle is built (and on which it stands) varies in colour from rich reds to honeyed golds and greys, the texture from coarse and gritty to very fine. This window shows a fair variety of stone - but what lies within the arch behind the window?

V1 for me too, Wonderful colours and textures in this red Chesire sandstone, and a peak at another corridor beyond. Excellent the way you've taken the curve of the arch into the corner of the square window. CG at her best.

Like the colours and textures in V1, though V2 is interesting.

The colours and textures in V1 are very appealing, and I enjoy the fact that nothing matches and there is no symmetry in the choice of stones.
