  • Presents, Caerlaverock Castle, Scotland🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
One of Scotland’s great medieval castles, with an impressive twin-towered gatehouse and a moat.

With its moat, twin towered gatehouse and imposing battlements, this awe-inspiring castle is the epitome of the medieval stronghold and one of the finest castles in Scotland. Although ruined, Caerlaverock is still a substantial structure and you can explore many different features within its unique triangular ground plan. Caerlaverock’s triangular shape is unique among British castles. A walk around the castle gives a sense of its strength, economy of form and pleasing geometry.

Three lengths of defensive curtain wall are linked at their three angles by high corner towers. On the north side is an impressive twin-towered gatehouse, where the Maxwells had their private rooms.

The Maxwells repaired and upgraded Caerlaverock over the years. The impressive machicolations (slotted defences) at the top of each tower date from the late 1300s or early 1400s – by which time the Wars of Independence with England had taken their toll.
Inside the castle walls is the remarkable Nithsdale Lodging, built in the 1630s by Robert Maxwell, 1st Earl of Nithsdale. Its attractive façade, with its ornate Renaissance stone carvings, is a sharp contrast to the severe castle walls. 📸 | @soaringthrough_the_sky ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

  • [ENG in comments] Specjał Weekendowy: Temat Rzeka AKA Dawna Pliszka

Idziemy na wycieczkę, przed siebie i nad rzeczkę. Pliszka to imię rzeczki oraz nasz cel wycieczki. W rzeczy samej przyjrzymy się dzisiaj trzem najciekawszym punktom na Pliszce, pomiędzy miejscowością Czyste a Zamętem. Pierwsza z nich oznaczona jest na mapie jako Granicznik (zdjęcia 1 i 2) - most drewniany, położony na granicy Gminy Torzym i Gminy Łagów. Idąc dalej an południe trafiamy na Toporowiec (3 i 4) - prawdopodobnie opuszczoną miejscowość, z ruinami mostu i ceikawym sztucznym spiętrzeniem wody.

W końcu docieramy do celu wyprawy. Gołębin (5,6 i 7)  to kolejna opuszczona osada, z największym i znanym już wam sztucznym spiętrzeniem, które tworzy mały, uroczy wodospad. Na miejscu zastajemy znowu ruiny mostu, tym razem jednak w towarzystwie resztek budynków - prawdopodobnie młyna. Na uwagę zwraca też piękne zakole Pliszki, ze swobodnie, wręcz dziko rosnącymi drzewami. Stąd dojdziemy do tunelu kolejowego, pod którym przepływa Pliszka i dalej do Zamętu, ale to już temat na inną wycieczkę. #wycieczka #rzeka #pliszka #łagoff #ruiny #opuszczone #lubuskie #niesamowitelubuskie #fieldtrip #river #ruins #abandonedplaces

  • One more from Bristol 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿
The leaning tower and walls of this large late medieval church in Bristol survived bombing during the Second World War. Temple Church is so called because the original church here was built by the Knights Templar, the medieval military order founded to protect pilgrims to the Holy Land. Their round church was later replaced with a more spacious rectangular one, and the shape of the first church is marked out in the ground.

  • "Nowhere in England is there another spot so full of charm as York and where in York is there a more charming spot than the Gardens of the Philosophical Society, in which stand the beautiful fragments of that once powerful and noble monastery of St. Mary's. Here we must leave the venerable pile in the evening of its glory."

  • НАСЛЕДИЕ | Канализационная насосная станция на Баухофсгассе (в районе Ластадиенштрассе).
▪️Канализация в Кёнигсберге появилась в конце XIX века. Здание же этой насосной станции было построено в 1890-х годах между  Райфшлагергассе и Фогельштрассе (ныне адрес: ул. Виктора Гюго, 2) по соседству со старыми шпайхерами. Рядом находилась и главная пожарная станция города (она же "Альтштадтская"), к сожалению, была разрушена во время войны. Вскоре здание было электрофицировано, также в здании имелся свой телефон, об этом свидетельствует наличие на фасаде короба с надписью "Reichspost"(в те времена почтовые, телеграфные и телефонные службы функционировали под названием "Дойче Рейхспост". Сооружение состояло из двух корпусов, один из которых не пережил войну, но фрагменты его стен можно увидеть до сих пор. Работоспособность станции была восстановлена вскоре после войны. Она считается самой первой канализационной насосной станцией в Кёнигсберге. @d_kliuev91

  • Colourless

I stand alone without a hue in strayed rains which clean me and write my destiny,
This coarse darkness opens graves in me silently,
Dreary winds make home in my heart with ease,
My ruins are my weal,
Stories of my pains are still written on its walls in carved calligraphy.
My joyful heart fled the day I lost colour,
My eyes were robbed of beauty,
And voice, of sweetness.
Death,
Death they say was better, but God turns back prayers of lovers to meet.
With written separation, I now wander places of autumn searching for fresh bloom.

I am a resident of forgotten heaven, I know the brokenness of a flourishing heart,
I know of the distant promises by travelers and how they break them and part ways, when they wave at me from their comfortable caravans,
Leaving for new promises to break.
I know of their admiration which they carry in their memories life long of my vibrance.
Now lost to desperation, my colour is desolate,
My graves come alive, for my living are dead,
And fears gnaw on my skin, I know nothing of console from a mortician.
Bound to be here, where I belong,
When I asked, God had created me free, I was my only confine.
Sky questioned me of the peace lost to sudden stampede,
Where faces were flung in the opposite fire.
I could only answer with silence, long lasting.

  • So we wanted to find this old castle (or whatever this was before nature took it back) to shoot products and some bike-action in. Turned out this whole area was closed so we had to climb around a cliff to even get to the overgrown stairs. Alas it was almost impossible to get the bikes there so we left this old lady alone and just admired it’s rusty beauty from afar. Have you ever turned around when on location? 🤔🤘🏻
