Upnor Castle on the Medway

Upnor Castle on the Medway

Upnor Castle is part of the small town of Upnor situated alongside the River Medway, near Rochester and Chatham, Kent.
The best view of the castle is from across the Medway, while on St Mary's Island.
The castle is an old artillery fort from Elizabethan times, strategically located to ward off naval invasion.
I decided to shoot this photograph black & white mainly to emphasise the structure, lines and textures of the historic site. This choice was made easier by the hard sunlight on the day.
