Hadleigh Castle Ruins, Essex

Art photograph of Hadleigh Castle, England, by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Hadleigh Castle.

Photo taken at Hadleigh Castle, Essex, England.

A small distance off the north bank of the Thames, there’s not much left of this once substantial castle. I sat on this project for a while trying to work out how to add something to this well-covered subject. After a few frustrating attempts, and giving it up a few times, I produced this, a kind of super-sepia take. It’s a tricky composition, but I like how the castle, tree, rocks, and clouds fit together.
