View From Clun Castle

Re-taken by Nature

This is the fabled view looking
down from Clun Castle that many a longbow archer will have taken as they fought over this famous Borderland Castle.

Perched high on two towering ice age mounds Clun Castle overlooks the South Shropshire town of Clun - no surprise there then.

"Though I often paint the ruin or
the remains of great human effort,
I am studying and honouring
enduring achievement
through capturing the detail
and alignment of constructed form.

With brush rather than arrow I make
my mark, but though I adopt a gentler 'weapon' in my goal to capture, I feel the same spirit of the quest to achieve the results I desire."

Drawing with Two Fingers
It is said that Medieval longbow archers used a two-fingered draw on the string, and if captured, by French soldiers they would cut off these two drawing fingers. Over time in close combat, it became common for Welsh longbow archers to taunt their French enemy by holding up their two fingers.
