Shadow Shot Sunday: Archway



Waked by reveille,
ghost troops stumble sleepily
through the stone archway.

  1. What a great shot – love that stone arch!
    Great shadow.

  2. What a beautiful old stone arch! A really terrific shot!

    Enjoy your weekend!


  3. very nice shot. i’d love to walk through this archway. 😉


  4. I wonder what it used to look like…I imagine there were walls on each side.
    Thanks for the visit and poetic comment!

  5. The archway looks like it was part of a walled city. Interestingly were that so, the irony of the walls that once protected the archway are gone. Perhaps that is just as well, we’d rather go in via the arch with or without its walls anyway!

  6. In through the shadows
    Of an ancient stone archway,
    Finding mystery.


  7. Lovely old remnant of stone!
    Nice composition of the shot.

  8. Very atmospheric, especially with your haiku to compliment it.

  9. Lovely archway and i love the glimpse you give us of the rest of the ruins, I want to walk through and explore!

  11. Distant stone portal
    Will the destination change?
    Just like in Star Trek
