Seeking the less travelled places with few tourists around always presents a surprise. Feeling like a five year old exploring in almost silence – learning its history. A castle in Ashby de la Zouch nestled in England’s south is one of those stunning surprises. Oh the stories those walls could tell. Climbing up the 98 stairs in the tower is worth the effort – birds nest in the thick walled windows and the view from the top? It was one of those magic days, beautiful blue sky – glorious lighting – the birds didn’t even budge when I took the shots! That is the gamble when you are travelling……this one paid off on this day.
