Not bad from somebody who is going to stoke the furnaces.
Bill Phillips: That thought would be more cheerful if I had you at the next furnace....just think an eternity of exchanging insults

Seriously fine study of "Rocks, with Ange and Castle", Bill.
Bill Phillips: I am obliged to you Ray. A far better title

Fantastic landscape! The sky is awesome smile
Bill Phillips: It was a beautiful summer sky Frances and we haven't had all that many for a while!
Lovely POV for this very nice shot.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mary. Pleased you like it
i like your POV Bill with the flowers growing in the crevice of the rocks... i also like the way that the wind in blowing Ange's hair....petersmile
Bill Phillips: A gentle zephyr Peter, proving she doesn't use hairspray grin

This is a very professional shot, Bill, and I am so glad you enjoyed your visit enough to be inspired like this
Bill Phillips: Ooooo thank you Lisl. The word professional is a rarity on this particular blog
I like the very low point of view, with focus on the rocks. This is really great!
Bill Phillips: You would have enjoyed watching me trying to get up again!

A nice day & a few buckets brimming with Lightroom, what more could you desire!
Bill Phillips: Let joy be unconfined Tiffo.

Yes, Britain is a stony, rocky country - but I like it and I like your photo- perspective -I knew that is Angela, your angel!
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Philine and these stones have been arranged by man.
Superb capture with this low POV Bill!
Bill Phillips: Pleased you like it Richard

The second castle that I visited in my life Bill, though you probably can't count Sham castle in Bath as first.
Bill Phillips: The first castle I visited was called Blackberry castle in Devon (I think) There was a sign saying that it was an ancient monument and that it was an offence to deface it. All we found was a few bits of random stone and somehow even defacing it could only have been an improvement

Angela seems to have lost her legs, but you seem to be kneeeling in a devote habit in front of her - that's okay!
Bill Phillips: hahaha! I was kneeling and it was a sight to behold watching me get up again grin
This begs the question as to whether you put yourself in the rocky gully or Ange decided it was time to collect on the insurance, gave you a push, and is busy ringing her insurance broker smile
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha......I'm worth even less dead than alive Brian
Great image shot from this vantage point, Bill. Including Ange gives it even more charm. Building that wall must have been a mammoth endeavour.
Bill Phillips: And that is only what is left of what was once a big building Beverly

I like the contrast of the rough with the smooth.
Bill Phillips: Don't we all comrade?
Looks like you took the attacker's view, Bill - hope you didn't get tangled with a pike-wielding defender!
Bill Phillips: Only my camera bag Tom
Superb angle Bill, a shot to be proud of.
Bill Phillips: That is very nice of you to say so Sally

Looks like you have tripped and fallen down a hole smile A fine view of the rocks and the plant thingy, though. Oh.. sky's good, too.
Bill Phillips: Some would wish that to be the case Alansmile
A good alternative view Bill
Bill Phillips: Thanks John. I did try to do something a bit different from my usual choccie box
A good alternative view Bill
This is such an interesting POV Bill, i like it!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Sarah. It made a change :d
