Beeston Castle Panorama

Photo of the Day

The hill occupied by Beeston Castle rises up strangely from the middle of the flat Cheshire plain. For as far as you can see, this and the other small hill occupied by Peckforton Castle nearby are the only elevated points. The rest is as flat as England ever seems to get.

A panoramic shot seemed to be the only sensible way to try to capture the vista from on top of the hill. Blessed with an almost perfectly clear day, who knows how many English counties I could see over the tops of those ruins.
