It looks like Leviathan in repose, John! Ancient-of-days moody, which I love.

A shot full of character John: but until this moment I had no idea Berkhamsted had a castle
Like Chris I never knew there was a castle in Berkhamsted. Excellent shot John, full of atmosphere
Excellent capture John. I like the atmosphere!

You give this a haunted/haunting ambience John.
I like the presentation of this John, is the castle built from flints and stones?
I like the atmosphere and that sky is a perfect backdrop

Great result
I have passed this so many times on the train but have never managed to get off and see it. Nicely presented.

Like something from another place and time; which I suppose it is in many ways. Really quite breath taking.
Fantastic presentation, composition, and mood. I really like this.
Great mood on this picture! I like it! We expect to see ghost coming out of this old walls! Great sky!
Have a nice day.
