Barnard Castle

Digital infrared original
Barnard Castle is a ruined medieval castle situated in the town of the same name in County Durham. Around 1300 Edward I granted it to the Earl of Warwick. In the 15th century the castle passed by marriage to the Neville family. In 1477 during the Wars of the Roses, Richard, Duke of Gloucester (later Richard III) took possession of the castle, which became one of his favourite residences.

Within the castle's round tower was this great view of a back-lit stairway coming down into the room; it provided a great sense of depth in an otherwise flat wall.

The view across a river towards the camera worked really well in infrared - the dark stone of the castle really separated well from the foliage and trees around it.
