Perrott's Folly is one of two towers in Waterworks Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham. The two towers are said to be the inspiration for the two towers in Tolkein's 'Lord of the Rings' as he lived in the area when a teenager.

Currently closed to the public for restoration work.

Mathew, excellent capture. I'll see this shot/technique as a dream like flashback. Very well captured and portraided.

Thanks Axel

It certainly has an ominous feel to it. Good job capturing it.

Thanks Hank. Can you picture Sarauman(?) wandering around in his robes...?

I admit I had to look up the character list to answer you, but yes, I can see "Saruman the White" wandering around in his flowing robes.
