This beautiful photo was used as imagery for part of this story; I hope you don't mind! If it's not too much to ask, may I upload a version of this story along with this photo? I will definitely credit you again in the description.
Fantastic! The look and the appealing colors to the eye are very interesting to look at. The writer in me immediately envisioned a scene for this, it's got an elegance to it that is rarely seen. It isn't too...showy but in a way, just elegant.
Is the "Red Castle" actually abandoned or is it maintained/protected? I can't imagine such a beautiful scene, frozen in time, to remain intact and undamaged here... The concept of such a pure glimpse at history is overwhelming and your photograph really does justice to the fantastic nature of such a find!
