Magnificent 15th-century fortress in Chinchon, quite big (notice the girls walking towards it, for scale) and pretty well preserved despite being about 600-year old.

Taken: Saturday, 14th May, 2011
Focal length: 25 mm
Shutter speed: 1/1000 sec
Aperture: F6.3
ISO: 80
Notes: Handheld in very variable light due to the constantly changing cloud coverage, with very dark sky in the distant background and very bright sky in the foreground. This is not an HDR image, it really looked like that at the time. It's not a panorama either, just a single 16:9 wideangle image.
