We parked on the side of the road and walked through an open gate onto the field where the ruins stood - tall stone walls - and I was thrilled. A few quick shots and we were back on the road, letting the farm dog across the lane relax his guard against the brazen intruders and the farmer back to his plowing.
Following is an abbreviated visual of how I got the picture I wanted to take, how I created the picture I wanted to make.
