great shot! very nice composition! The dark blue sky makes me curious, did you use a polarizing filter?

Matthew Walters on September 2, 2007

Thanks shil, yes - you caught me out. This shows how handy a polarizer is, it really brings out the blue sky and the clouds.

Привет, Матвей! :) Фантастика - и здание, и снимок! Приятно смотреть на работы, которые помещаются в Photoshop только для того, чтобы изменить размер изображения :) Спасибо!

Matthew Walters on October 11, 2007

Спасибо, Олег! Он чувствовать себя хорошим, когда изображение более или менее готовы прямо из камеры.

Thanks hardertom, marek, and shorty - it depends if you've been bad or good.

The "Saxon" tower was designed by James Wyatt in 1794[3] to resemble a mock castle, and built for Lady Coventry in 1799. The tower was built on a "beacon" hill, where beacons were lit on special occasions. Lady Coventry wondered if a beacon on this hill could be seen from her house in Worcester - approximately 22 miles (35 km) away - and sponsored the construction of the folly to find out. The beacon could be seen clearly.
