Bodiam Castle, built in 1395 is another reminder that the landscape in East Sussex used to be much different. It was built to protect from French raids up the River Rother, when the river was navigable up to that point. It is a lovely ruin and has been photographed beautifully by many people, as a Google image search reveals. I didn’t want to take a generic photograph of the castle, so I’m pleased that the Google search, at least on search page 1, doesn’t have a similar photograph! Do they work as a composition though? Your opinions would be welcome!
*These images are revisions of the ones I originally posted. I’d neglected to flip the photos round so that Bodiam Castle was orientated correctly and it always bothered me. I’ve corrected that now. You can view these full size on my Flickr page by clicking on the photograph.
