rising moon


please click on photo to enlarge for greater details.



for this weeks skywatch. I took this photo last sunday while on a day trip out east. does this tower look familiar to anyone? it is right down the road from the sculpture in yesterdays post. when my son was little, his dad used to tell him an ogre lived in the top of the tower. I wonder how many other dads told their children such stories about this tower?

I love the cool details on the tower and its circular shape. I definitely would have believed that story as a kid :)

Hello!

by the way speaking ofcommodus, it reminds me " Gradiater"( is this spelling wrong?)
I like the movie!

It's a wonderful tower - conducive to all sorts of imaginative tales. And don't you love the pattern of the shingles on the roofs? The moon is just wonderful.

I could definitely see Shrek and Fiona taking up residence there.

I have no idea where it is, but love the picture!

Moon shots are all the rage on the CDP blogs these last several days! Bibi (Belgrade) had a fabulous one, too the other day, just for one example.

As Kim wrote, the details on that tower are very interesting. Nice composition.

That's probably why they cemented the windows... because the ogre lives inside...
