Framlingham Moat by sivvus Framlingham Moat by sivvus
This week Jessie (the other Ginger Biscuit Stock'er) and I spent a few days going around the local market towns and castles, taking lots of stock photos for TCP. This is one of my favourites, although Jessie describes it as 'some random tree'. :/

Framlingham, Suffolk is the castle where Mary Tudor defended herself during/after her brother's death. It is also where she ascended to the throne of England. Prior to that it was a Norman fort, and afterwards it was converted to a work house. The chimneys are actually Tudor additions, although many of them are fake- having a lot of chimneys was seen as a mark of wealth!

This photo was taken from the bed of the old fish lake, which was used to (obviously) store fish.

I'll be uploading the stock folders (as zips) soonish when I've gone through them all. I'll try to be as informative as possible in the descriptions, as I know it's a bugger when you want to draw an authentic Norman fort, and there are Tudor chimneys everywhere! :onfire:

I think a bit of the wall has blown down actually- it seemed a little more like a colander than before. :S

You could use this as a reference for Dunlath, maybe, when Numair turns Tristan into a tree? Except with more mountains?

I dunno. I've been rereading all my Tortall books lately and it's the first thing that entered myhead.

I just thought it'd be good for general backgroundyness... I'll upload the rest of the pictures tonight. Basically the castle is a big wall around some C17th buildings, but we climbed onto the battlements and took a few pictures looking down which I thought might also work for people who are scared of heights... :P
