Thanks, Tarth,

This is one of these features that it is difficult to photograph. If you are up close, it doesn't look like anythingat all. If you are further away it is a small feature which usually just merges into the background.

On this particular day the sun broke through a hole in the clouds illuminating the Motte so it stood out from the forest around it. I then selecte a long focal length so it was the main feature of the photograph.
