Castel Sant’Elmo

So I thought to myself I am quiet enjoying this meander between the highlands of Scotland and Italy - so I went for wee wander in to my archive and had a play with some bleach toning - I hope you like the result - I am extremely pleased with it - when I took the shot I simply didn't have the skill-set to cope with recovering the strong light around the figure at the end of the tunnel - but more importantly I am pleased that my composition has stood the test of time (well that's my view anyway - lol)

Castel Sant’Elmo is a medieval fortress located on a hilltop near the Certosa di San Martino, overlooking Naples, Italy. The name “Sant’Elmo” derives from a former 10th-century church, Sant’Erasmo, shortened to “Ermo” and, finally altered to “Elmo”. It presently serves as a museum, exhibition hall, and offices (Description via Wikipedia)

    1. Lautal thank you so glad you enjoyed it – I seen the shot immediately when I was there but couldn’t master the exposure – time has provided the opportunity to grab something from it now.

  1. I, too, enjoy your meanderings between Scotland and Italy, and your mix of natural landscape and manmade architecture. This is a beautiful shot, so tranquil.

  2. It is wonderful to look back and find images you still love in older stuff. Sometimes just needing a bit of refining with skills you didn’t used to have. I’m glad you kept it and thanks for sharing.

    1. well Dawn don’t think twice – if you get the chance go for it. Naples is amazing and disappointing all at the same time – it is rather dirty but get beyond the dirt and the mafia and you will love it – Northern Italy is safe as houses and beautiful
