    • Yes, it is rather fine, isn’t it?. The university campus was built on the grounds of the castle’s estate and I believe the castle itself functions as an admin building.

  1. That’s an excellent composition and angle of view, Graham. Among other things, I like the way the green grass balances the blue sky, very pleasing, and then the building links them. The roadway adds a lot – the curve even echoes the curves in the tower. They should hire you.
