Castle Entrance Gate, Wild Grass & Hills and Go Your Own Way

"Castle Entrance Gate" :- Arundel is a Arundel is a small market town nestling in the South Downs of West Sussex, England. It's famous for its listed buildings, the river, its Roman Catholic cathedral and above all its medieval castle. Arundel Castle was built at the end of the 11th century by Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel. The castle's motte (its oldest feature) was constructed in 1068, just two years after the Norman invasion and the Battle of Hastings. This is a shot of the main entrance gate that tourists enter the castle by when it's open to the public. This week (Tuesday 22 July to Sunday 27 July 2014) Arundel Castle is holding an International Jousting & Medieval Tournament Week.

"Wild Grass & Hills" :- This image was shot between the villages of Kingston and Falmer as I was walking over the downs back to the village of Ovingdean from the town of Lewes in Sussex, England. It's (approx) a 15 minute drive but if you decide to walk it you are at least looking at an hour and a half, if not more. The views and scenery are wonderful, when you're in the car you don't get to see the fields or the rolling downs as the road is at the bottom of a deep cutting with high chalk banked sides.

"Go Your Own Way" :- A public bridleway winds its weary way between farmland. In the distance (to the right) the village of Woodingdean starts to twinkle as its light sare turned on as dusk takes a hold. A heavy cloud bank slides into place, stifling the light even more and causing a chill to fill the air.
