There is not many places to shoot this "château des Anglais" from. I thought about absailing down the cliff with my chainsaw and cutting them there branches but it was a cold morning so I didn't bother. Apparently Richard the lion heart stayed here for a while when he besieged a fortified village about a mile away. I didn't know if this fits the challenge very well but there are several of these curiosities around where I live so I thought I would share one with you.

wow nice shot, I like how you got the colour into the rocks. It would have been nice if that lower branch was not block some of the stone work, but I guess there was no other angle you could have used.
