Many thanks to Bri†ain for the loan of his fantastic sky.

I'm wearing my cross & chain, and I have some garlic and a pointed stake, so I'm OK! Nice experiment with colour, Kenny, but I still prefer the earlier one. Theolfa

I was thinking about adding a couple of bats.

Thanks for your valued comment.

Hells bells Kenny,thats a bit scary!! nice effects, though i think i prefer the Sepia version.

Kenny Wharton on March 20, 2011

Thanks for your kind words Neil I personally think Si's adaptation is better.

Hi Kenny, I did think about adding my Moon but to be honest i haven't a clue how to do it.I had a few goes at copying and pasting but no joy so i gave up.I even tried drawing in some forked lightning,no joy there either.If you can do it mate please go ahead, i'll look forward to the result.

You do realize that all these are ending up in Google Earth, right?

There will be eastern Europeans touring all over Romania looking for this blinking place!


Keep up the good work Monkey Wrench Gang

Welcome Jethro I thought I would have to do a heavy HDR version with the obligatory sign in the lawn to catch your eye! So not only have I upset my friends at Ettington Park Hotel I have upset all of Romania?

Hows your spawn?


David Brown Photogra… on March 25, 2011

Hehehehe.... I wanted to continue with more play on words but I couldn't find a pot toad in a pawn shop.

Did you really upset the Ettington crowd? Oh no!



Kenny Wharton on March 25, 2011

No they are not upset, they probably dont even know....... yet!

Take a look HERE I put all the reworks on one place.

Hi Kenny, just reading earlier comments... lovely!:) make me laugh... well as I said in a the photo with the bats I was born in Transylvania (and I'm proud of ):)so here I am a Romanian and a Transylvanian but I can asure you and everyone here I am not upset au contraire I am really happy to see this...(would've been great to have a castle like this over there )Since I came here (England) I had lots of jokes about it and I really enjoy them... none of them upset me...(and sometimes had some funny looks from some peoples, he, he, he:)))

Like it and Y* ... My best wishes...
