Castle Reflection

I’m posted a few images from Bodiam Castle recently, and this is another one taken with the NEX-7. Again, I was taking a long exposure with my Canon set up on a tripod, and so I decided to take a few handheld images with the smaller camera. As I’ve found before, the flip out live view screen came in especially handy in allowing me to compose a low down shot without having to actually get down on the ground.

That’s a good thing because, as you can see, the ground was pretty wet after the rain shower that had just taken place. I therefore simply bent over a bit and held the camera above a puddle on the path to get this image of the castle reflected within it.

One of the main features of this castle is the lovely moat that surrounds it. You lose the moat in this image due to the low perspective I have, however you also gain water through the puddle, so in a way you still get the idea it sits on water. I like that about it.
