The Walls of Lincoln Castle

.
Aged walls crumble
as earth reclaims its own...we
are but fleeting here…

This photo of Lincoln Castle was taken during a trip to England in 2007.
While the castle has stood for centuries, it is certain that time will return it to the earth.

  1. I love the mixing of the gray and tan stones, aged and the contrast of the new green grass.
    What tales those stones could tell if they could only talk.
    I wonder how many of the structures built today will stand the test of time?
    Lovely photo!
