[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Despite the name and its grim appearance, the devil has never resided in this 13th-century fortress. Through the centuries, it has been used as a knights’ residence, an arsenal, a monastery, a school and a bishop’s seminary. In 1623, it became a madhouse for the mentally ill and a home for male orphans. Another part of the building was used as a prison or detention centre. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, it has been home to the State Archives. - See more at: http://www.visitgent.be/en/castle-gerald-devil#sthash.AWaTq8hQ.dpuf

Such a foreboding piece of architecture, both in name and in stature.
I like the perspective and positioning.

Hi John,
A spectacular POV to capture this huge castle by the canal.
Very interesting reflections and I like the bridge uniting the presentation.
Very sharp and neat image.
