Beauty and Ruins

Captured at Southerness junction, I could find no record of what the ruins were but I loved the way they caught the light and the tree almost seemed to be hugging them.

I have added a song called 'Beauty and Ruin' by David Starr

Taken in 16.9 so I would appreciate if you could view this on full screen. Thank you

Many thanks to Beulipix who kindly searched and found that this ruin was in fact Wreaths Tower
and who sent me the link to the history. I very much appreciate this after failing to discover this information in my searches.

Here is the link:-

Fabulous light and a great variation on the lone tree theme, It looks possibly like a church tower. Excellent image

Beauty and beautiful ruins :-)
I like the song too, but why is it that men often sing about despair and loss whereas women usually sing about what they hope to find even if they haven't yet? ;-)

Ecobird replied to Edna Edenkoben:

Thank you very much Edna. I am pleased you like the song too. Maybe men just realise that sad songs sell better, or maybe women are just more optimistic

Wonderful to see this picture in full screen mode.
I find it particularly beautiful when the plants and trees are combined with stone.

Whole new meaning to tree hugging!

Fabulous shot Carol, the light is wonderful and the PoV is perfect. You're right, 16:9 shows it all off brilliantly.
