TINTAGEL CASTLE CORNWALL IN SEPIA

A sepia shot of the spectacular rugged coastline and imposing ruins of Tintagel Castle, North Cornwall, SW England, UK. According to legend, Tintagel is the legendary place of conception of King Arthur, famous for his Knights of the Round Table. His father, Uther Pendragon, used Merlin the wizard's sorcery to disguise himself as Gorlois (also his enemy) the husband of Igraine, whom he loved, to gain access to the castle for his tryst. The castle is in a superior defensive position which straddles high ground and precipitous cliffs on the mainland across to an island linked to the mainland by a pedestrian bridge. Another controversial higher bridge is being built. One of my favourite places!

      It is Peter. I liked this view of the layout of the site which I took years ago. However the light was tricky and it was a big area with a lot going on. It was all a little lost in colour so I went for the old fashioned postcard look. Hopefully it enhanced the ruins, paths and the topography
