Bodiam Castle, East Sussex

Originally built in the 1390s for Sir Edward Dalyngrigge, Bodiam Castle is now in the care of the National Trust. This image was taken whilst I was undertaking a night time survey of the castles numerous graffiti inscriptions for the Trust. The 'snap' was taken after I had to return to my car to collect further equipment. On coming back I realised I had forgotten to turn off the survey lights, which just illuminated the castle gateway in the growing dark. I took the picture and thought no more about it.
