Conisbrough & Warwick Castle

Digital infrared original
This day was begin in southern Yorkshire, at Conisbrough Castle.It was great fun to explore, and very photogenic, as the hill it was upon shielding the surrounding town from view, and presented a fabulous setting to photograph the castle in.

I have always had a weakness for spiral stairs, and this wooden one in Warwick was no exception; I spent perhaps ten minutes photographing it; a challenge without a tripod. In the end, the above image, made with the camera balanced against the banister, was my favorite because of the sweeping curves.

Photographing at Warwick Castle was challenging, as it was a serious tourist attraction, and tripods were not an option. After spending a couple of hours wandering about and photographing within the castle, I walked around the outside with a tripod, which made it much more pleasing a photographic experience.
