Dunluce Castle

Today we find ourselves at another ruined castle. This is Dunluce, one of the most picturesque and romantic of Irish Castles. With evidence of settlement from the first millennium, the present castle ruins date mainly from the 16th and 17th centuries. It was inhabited by both the feuding McQuillan and MacDonnell clans. It is located on the edge of a basalt outcropping in County Antrim, and is accessible via a bridge connecting it to the mainland.

I don't know why castle ruins make such a good picture, but they do! It must be something to do with their surroundings as well. This is a beauty Herb.
I had intended just giving your pictures that I had missed, a star, but couldn't help commenting on most as well. I have enjoyed looking through them.

All the best, Rosa.

A great perspective of the castle in this shot Herb.............and the bridge that connects it to the mainland. It seems quite a lot of safety features have been put in place to stop bits falling off and hurting people.

Great light too........and I love the blue tones of the sea and sky. Very nicely captured.
