  Happy New Year

I wish everyone a Happy New Year, health, love, and lots of books.

York Minster, one of the windows

I don't have photos of fireworks, but I think that shot is a fitting substitute - taken against the light the rosette window looks like an exploding firework star on the night sky.

Happy New Year! Love the picture!
 
Lovely photo. Happy New Year!
 
A stained glass window is a brilliant alternative. Happy New Year, Gabriele.
 
Fantastic picture! I like how it DOES have a likeness to fireworks. Happy New Year!
 
Happy Hogmanay....

Thank you, Susan, Carla, Shelley, Meghan and Stag.
 
Hey love the photos. I'm a Scot in Scotland and it was great to see Doune Castle. I've been there a couple of times but not recently. Didn't even realise it was in the Monty Python and the Holy Grail film at the time! I have lots of panoramic photos of York which I think you might like.
Was at Clifford's Tower with my wife in August but wow was it higher than I wanted (and with a lower railing than I'd have liked!)
 
Gabriele -- Happy new year! And thanks for another year of blog entries that let me feel as if I'm enjoying a holiday even when I'm stuck here in D.C. :)
 
Thank you for your kind words, Actual Education and Jeff. Sharing my photography and research with people makes it more fun for me.

The Lost Fort is a blog based on my travels in Germany, the UK and other places, with essays on Roman and Mediaeval history illustrated with lots of photos of old castles, cathedrals, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes. You may also find the odd essay about geology or Mediaeval literature.

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
