Peek: Raglan Castle – photo challenge

This week’s photo challenge of the daily post was ‘peek’ – showing a glimpse of something that might awake curiosity.

A very different way to approach this photo challenge is showing smaller parts of a bigger building as I learned a while ago in my art class at school. Very often, architecture and buildings are shown in their whole appearance. But what about the details? The things that make them special? Or different perspectives? The viewer gets a sneak peek looking through a window of a building, only seeing a small part of what awaits on the outside.

I took pictures of different perspectives exploring Raglan Castle in Wales.

The castle, which is traditionally called Castell Rhaglan, is a late medieval ruin in the south east of Wales. It was built around the 15th century and is known for the hexagonal keep which is also called Great Tower or Yellow Tower of Gwent. After offering a home for different inhabitants, the romantic ruin is now a modern tourist attraction.

Walking through such resilient places and exploring history is always a special time 😉
