Three castles


Today I’ve chosen photos of three different castles to share with you. I must say that they aren’t as good as they could. First two were taken during my very first trip with Sony a200 DSLR on June 2008. Back then I was more than total beginner and if I managed to get some good shots it was pure luck. Third picture was taken on March 2009 as sample shot after buying Tamron 200-400mm lens so it isn’t anything special either. I just wanted to share these places with you no matter if photos are technically good or bad. Hope you’ll like them.

#1 Czorsztyn Castle. I’ve already posted one shot of it 3 months ago and I’ll probably keep posting them at least once per year. I’m visiting Czorsztyn and Niedzica every summer, but I don’t take lots of shots during these trips (or it would be pointless to visit them next year :-))

1/1000 sec, f/5.6, ISO 200, 70 mm (105 mm equivalent)

#2 Niedzica Castle. Its clearly visible that some parts were completly reconstructed. Those aren’t ruins anymore…

#3 Rytro Castle. About 30 kilometers from my home yet I’ve never had time to visit it. Maybe because from outside it doesn’t look as promising as previous two castles.
