Skipton's Pictures

Not Fake Twisted Trees
Not Fake Twisted Trees (QTEK 9100)

Right in the middle of the castle at Skipton is a tree. Well I say in the middle but it's more toward the front but to all intents and purposes since it's surrounded on all sides by castle it may as well as be in the middle.

The tree must have been there for many years and provides the courtyard with a sort of magical quality and provides some shade from the sun. The bench seat around the bottom of the tree would have been nice to sit under in most weathers. Then all of a sudden I realized it. I have been to many castles in my time and none have had much athletic qualities for obvious reasons. Malaga castle does have terrace gardens but it was less to do with planting posies such like for flower pressing and more to do with surviving a siege. This courtyard is not so practical which brought me to the only conclusion that this part of the castle was designed by a woman or we were seeing homosexual tenancies in the architect. All I need now with this tree is a good book and gin and tonic. Cheers.

Skipton Reflection
Skipton Reflection (QTEK 9100)

Similar to a picture taken in Florence this is a picture of the sun in a window of Skipton castle. This time I had to wait less time. From what I remember of the Florence picture I camped out there with my girlfriend waiting for the sun to come back out from behind the clouds. Also this time I had my QTEK and not a decent camera to counteract any underexposure that could be caused by the sun being directed straight into the camera.
