[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Swallow's Nest is a mock-medieval castle near Yalta, in Crimea, Ukraine. It was built between 1911–1912 near Gaspra, on top of 40-meter (130 ft) high Aurora Cliff, to a Neo-Gothic design by the Russian architect Leonid Sherwood. The castle overlooks Ai–Todor cape of the Black Sea, accessable from the Atlantic Ocean, and is located near the remnants of the Roman castrum of Charax. Swallow's Nest is one of the most spectacular visitor attractions in Crimea.

Thanks you for the fine image and interesting information about the swallow's nest. Nice sside lighting and clarity. Ny only suggestion would be to have move the castle further to the left of the frame. Somewhere past center.
