Riding Down To Camelot......




~ Camelot Castle  Adelaide Hills ~



"Four gray walls and four gray towers
overlook a space of flowers"

Did I find that bold knight Sir Lancelot
or the beautiful Island of Shalott
unfortunately not!!

but I did find the pretty space of flowers
and was able to gaze where the lillies blow



"Willows whiten aspens quiver
   little breezes dusk and shiver.......



This is my contribution to "Scenic Sunday"

I suppose partly because of the wild garden, the castle does look quite authentic.

and this is someone's private home I suspect? Lovely photo

Arija said...

Nice one Dianne,. With pictures like this, who needs an SLR?

A castle near Adelaide, that's a nice surprise to me! Must be a great place to visit.
God bless you!

Great discovery of what seems like a fascinating and unusual place Dianne. Looks like they have their own coat of arms on the flag.

Where is that Dianne - a winery?

Dianne said...

I would like to be up there waiting for my prince

the tone of your reflection shot below is beyond stunning
the color is magical

Oh that really is a 'space of flowers', with the turret rising up, what a brilliant find Dianne, lovely romantic feel to it!

A marvel.

I love these photos. What a wonderful place for a photo shoot. Would be great for weddings. Well chosen words to accompany the images. I particularly liked the verse on the last photo. Your blog is part of my must read list.

Jack said...

Your first photo is terrific, shooting from that low perspective and filling the frame with flowers tumbling over one another. Excellent!

Valerie said...

Beautiful captures Dianne - I can almost hear the clip-clop of colourfully draped horses on the flagstones and see their chainmail attired knight riders urging them on towards the drawbridge and out to do battle !!

Mark said...

What a wonderful place!

I remember going to a wedding there once, it was a terrific location and huge fun for everyone.

Oh, this looks so very nice with the green, would love to clime up.

Liz said...

What a gorgeous castle. It would be a perfect location for a wedding. I love the gardens. Beautiful!

A strange and wonderful place, full of the spirit of King Arthur.

I wasn;t aware of this castle on the Adelaide Hills. Must go in and have a look around next time I visit... Lovely photos and words, Dianne.
Enjoy your week.
