An amazing photo
Happy you like it Raewyn 🙂
That is a stunning sky Paula.
Where did you find this gem?
Yes, that’s once in a lifetime sky. I captured it on Corsica.
I should have known, your love for Corsica always shines thorugh
You’ve really excelled yourself with this sky Paula – and that’s saying a lot! You’ve also shown all parts of the definition you give with the structure and the graffiti. Uncommon animals? I wonder! The three-part composition is wonderful two, each layer so different.
I can’t take credit for the sky 😉 I would love to see a stronghold of animals too…. Thank you, Meg.
Of course you can. If I’d photographed it, it wouldn’t have looked like that!
I like your photography Meg, and I think you are very talented, perceptive and sensitive.
And I thank you. That is a compliment indeed from you. (NB I can spell “too” too: I just fail as a proofreader sometimes.)
Please don’t worry about typos Meg. 🙂

It’s an incredible sky the one you captured here….the credit goes to you , for being able to seize the right moment….
Skies change continuously………
🙂 Grazie Anna. Buona domenica!
I like the dramaof this shot. The processing on the sky is terrific. It’s an interesting challenge too.
Thanks a bunch Suzanne 🙂 I hope to see your entry soon 🙂
I will get some enteries in soon. Ithere’s other stuff happening that’s dedemanding a lot of time but I will get to your challenges soon, I promise.
Thank you for letting me know Suzanne. Just take care and we’ll catch up.
Sure thing. I will definitely get some of your challenges done this week. Thanks for your kind words -I hope your week goes well.

Good afternoon, Paula. Here’s my stronghold – physical and mental – the stories families tell about themselves: http://wp.me/pKVAM-1kn Hope you’re having a good weekend.
Good afternoon Tish 🙂 This is a wonderful contribution from you, but then again, I could not expect anything less from you.
Forgot to say, your image is v. dramatic. It needs a dystopic, Sci Fi tale to go with it.
A great photo, Paula! That sky is amazing! 🙂
Thank you, Linda. That sky belongs to Corsica, my favourite place on Earth 🙂

This is impressive and unusual
Thanks Luke 🙂
joli, quel ciel tourmenté !
Le ciel de Corse 😉 Merci Marc!
A great picture of a stronghold
Pingback: BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: STRONGHOLD | SERENDIPITY
That is a stronghold in the strongest possible meaning of the word. Very impressive photograph! Mine is the Statehouse in Boston. It too is a stronghold, but exactly what it holds strongly is a matter of individual interpretation.
This picture has a post apocalypse feel to it, very fierce, eerie and abandoned.
🙂 cheers Hilary
Wow Paula, that sky looks like enough of a stronghold on its own!
Well put, Patti 😀
Wonderful, amazingly good photo, Paula. Just a hint of colour for effect. 🙂
🙂 I didn’t realise that I had left a hint of colour :D. That’s cool. Are you still busy, Draco? Wish you a good week!

Here’s a link to my post Paula – as usual I went off on a tangent. 🙂
It’s good that you have. A thought provoking post showing your multiple talents 🙂 Thank you, Suzanne!
I’ve seen this one before in colors, haven’t I? I’m pretty sure I have.
It looks great as monochrome too.
Yes, you have 🙂 https://bopaula.wordpress.com/2013/10/23/thursdays-special-e-u-tempu-sa-and-the-time-knows/
Dramatic atmosphere. The sky and that graffiti structure make perfect combo. Is it a bunker?
so, did you say “Hi” to my owl? 🙂 how was the trip?
😀 Hello Klara 🙂 I did not go to that part of the bank, but I lingered in Belem for quite a while. It was a very exciting trip 🙂 But tell me please, where have you been on holiday?
as you already found out, I was in Japan. one laughing Buddha sitting in may hallway 🙂
I loved Lisbon a lot – among other things that photo of me and the owl was taken during bike ride from one bridge (april something) to the other – Vasco da Gama – such a pleasant surprise that bike trail along the river from one end to other.
P.S. And yes, it is a bunker from WWII that I have found on Corsica 🙂
Marvelous take on the “stronghold”. Did you bring any laughing Buddha’s figurines home with you? I hope that you have. 🙂
Wow. Absolutely stunning picture. So dramatic!
Nice. C’est en Corse? (D’après le commentaire + haut)
The clouds in the sky make your photo really effective Paula.
Yes, they made a difference. Thank you, Colline.
What a nice shot, I like that
Grand merci Sylvain! 🙂
Ah yes- I remember this one 🙂 Interesting treatment. Don’t know when I’ll be TS-ing again, Paula (or even what this week’s theme is, though I did look last week, I’ve forgotten) Blogging really matters very little when push comes to shove, doesn’t it, but I value the good friends I have made. Thank you very much for your kind offer. It’s a topic I can get very wound up on and that won’t help. Take good care of yourself, and I’ll be back soon. 🙂 Hugs!
Thinking of you and Lisa and hoping for a good outcome. Hugs (and don’t worry about blogging).
