Kenilworth Stairwell

On October 6, 2012 Ruth and I visited Kenilworth Castle in the Midlands of England. It’s a fantastic medieval castle ruin and one of the most renowned of English historical castles.
While exploring the ruins I found this moody, dramatic inside corner with a circular staircase leading up to the floors above. I was glad to have my tripod with me, as this scene was lit with very low light levels requiring a 1.3 second exposure, even at ƒ 6.3.
