Marvelous. Simply, marvelous.

This photograph is unique. The angle in which the castle is presented truly does match the title - the Castle of Madness, indeed. It is almost as if you could feel the darkness creeping around and stealing the light, as the dark clouds rise from behind the building, covering the bright sky and the sun in a matter of seconds, or so it appears.

The trees make a nice border on the left, adding to the feeling of proximity to the scene and the lion carved above the entrance not only seeks attention, but gives a warning as well. It is almost as if he spoke the warning, foretelling the disastrous event that would come. Yes, the symbol of strength and power dominates the castle - the castle of the beast.

Madness, indeed.
All in all, the overall impact is great and awakes the amazement.
Beautiful creation!

I agree with :iconfuturnal:, my first thought was: oooooh, Brennenburg! But it's a beautiful picture, this building has emotions (and maybe the last part is too far-fetched :'D) and it takes a lot to make it look like a lifeless thing has emotions. ^^

How do you always get a huge, looming effect with the buildings?

In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
A lion still has claws,
And mine are long and sharp my lord,
As long and sharp as yours.
