What a pretty castle, if castles can be pretty. Those clouds are very dramatic too. It must be very temperate here to have pine trees as well. Wonderful photo.

Never rebuke while you’re still indignant about a fault committed—wait until the next day, or even longer. Then calmly, and with a purer intention, make your reprimand. You’ll gain more by a friendly word than by a three-hour quarrel. -Josemaria Escriva

This goes into my faves. The drama of the medieval architecture with the dark clouds and dusky sky is just about as perfect as it gets. Thanks, Eder.

Is that the real sky! if so, you got a brilliant capture in this...Looks very threatening, and that castle gives this right 'setting' for it...........

What an intriguing photo, great position and angle. Waiting until the clouds behind the main tower were positioned just right was well worth the wait. Intriguing also because I can't imagine where this place would be located; has to be along the Mediterranean somewhere, with a palm tree like that in the pic. Great shot.

Very nice capture, and I love the palm tree, really adds to the shot.
Nicely done.
