Transylvanian Tales:The Castle by wyldraven Transylvanian Tales:The Castle by wyldraven
Part of my Transylvanian Tales series :)
'The Castle'... the first time it is seen, dark and foreboding, and where I,(the hapless victim in the story, lol), seeks residence and finds myself trapped there.

I was going to submit a short story with each picture, but the inspiration just didn't come to me!
This is the 3rd picture of the series (i won't be submitting them in any particular order because i haven't even done the first picture yet) :P

Kind of reminds me of Bran Castle, the home of the famous Vlad Tepes III, who we know is the inspiration for Bram Stoker's character Count Dracula.

So would I. It would be quite an experience to visit the ancient castle that was once the home of the legendary Vlad Tepes.

actually, if i remember right, Bran Castle isn't the official Vlad Tepes castle. It was Poenari castle which was his home and is mainly a ruin now. Vlad was also held prisoner at Corvin Castle, also known as Hunedoara or Corvinesti castle (which is my favourite one :) )

I agree. My personal favorite is the 1992 film directed by Franchis Ford Coppola, and starring Gary Oldman as the Count.

I live in Transylvania, near the castle. It looks almost like in your vision...it is enchanting and magical. I love the picture.

thanks very much! that means a lot to me coming from a Romanian :) must be awesome living near the castle.
I should have used either Bran or Corvin castle (this one in my picture is a German castle)

Nice, it actually looks like Bran Castle, only more impressive with those mountains and all :P Why didn't you use a photo of it?
It actually has bats flying around it at night, that's how I first saw it in my childhood :D
