Falling sunset by ioannicolae Falling sunset by ioannicolae
It was my thirteenth year on a cold winter's
day, as I walked through the enchanted forest,
I heard the sound of horses and men at arms,
I felt compelled to walk on and find the place
of these sounds, and when the forest did clear
I was standing, waiting. I thought to myself,
for whom or for what are they waiting ?
Suddenly a gust of wind came up from the north.
There appeared a lone rider, holding a sword
of steel. Then from the south came another,
bearing a battle ax. From the east came a third,
holding a spiked club. And finally, from the west,
a rider who wielded a great hammer of war.
With them came their soldiers of death, followed
by an army of immortals. They were few in number,
but the look in their eyes told all who beheld
them that they would leave this day only in
victory or death. And there was a great silence...


Manowar - The Warriors Prayer

Note:
This castle is known as Dracula's Castle.

Thank you dear for your comment!
Yes, you're right, at daylight it's not scary, but what about at midnight?
Just follow the [link] to see it at the midnight (and from another angle). I'll wait your second opinion about it. :)

Este facuta chiar din dreptul curbei. Pentru o zi de februarie sunt destul de ciudate culorile. :)

Faina poza. La descriere mai bine puneai ceva mai romantic (gen theatre of tragedy)... manowar sux dupa parerea mea (le-am vazut videoclipele - haha)
