Sorrento Trip.. Walls of Herculaneum

.

I always find the construction of buildings very interesting and loved the walls at both Pompeii and Herculanium..

As you know I like to document things and these are ancient walls from Herculanium with a bird thrown in for free.. 🙂

The black in the photo below is original wood charred by the heat from the volcanic ash and boiling mud that buried Herculanium in 79AD

  3. Helen, I really love the colours and textures in these shots – very beautiful indeed! The top one is a lovely portrait of a Jackdaw, and the one below is mysterious, with line and shadows curving here and there.

    The second from the bottom is an incredibly compelling abstract – it could be dunes in a desert or houses in a town – and its easy to see the pale, sandy coloured structures as either upstanding above the substrate or as depressions within the substrate – great stuff! Adrian
