Cheshire, Beeston Castle

Cheshire continues to be a black and white location. I’d hoped for a good sunset but it turned cloudy and wet, hence the B+W treatment. The location is the Peckforton hills, a short stretch of sandstone hills with three castles, the most famous one being Beeston Castle.

I used the Pentax K20D for a change. I think the quality is pretty much indistinguishable from the Olympus, though perhaps I can generally get sharper results with the Olympus.

I should own up that the shot of the blossoming branch was taken near Dunham Massey a few days before. It seemed to belong and I didn’t want a post just for that (and it’s an Olympus shot).
