[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Swallow's Nest castle was built between 1911 and 1912 near Gaspra, on top of 40-metre (130 ft) high Aurora Cliff, to a Neo-Gothic design by the Russian architect Leonid Sherwood.
The castle is constructed in the place of a wooden cottage (1895), romantically named the "Castle of Love."

I love the POV on your photo...
In an ideal world it would have been great to move the castle slightly over into the right, but the palate is so soothing, that does it really matter? grin

Hi Catalina..nice shot...excellent perspective with nice focus and depth of field. Well done.
