Fence and Defence - HFF!

Fence and Defence - HFF!
This cannon and fence are in the grounds of Eilean Donan Castle.

I have chosen the link 'Safe Again' by Carole King

www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZdppGEUNNE

I guess the defences make the occupants feel safe and have added Westlife's 'Safe' as a second link

Somehow, the fence doesn't look like a good defense against invaders. Maybe against drunken defenders falling into enemy hands below. ;-)

Ecobird has replied to Ronald Losure
Good evening and many thanks Ronald. Really appreciated. You are right - the fence, although attractive adds little in the way of defence. I like the idea of the drunken defenders, - not too sure if it would stand up to many of them either!. It has made me smile though! HFF and have a good weekend

Hi Carol

Very nice composition and well taken, especially the autumn colours.
Perhaps the cannons are ready for us to send our own missiles over to 'Fat Boy' / 'Rocket Man' if he gets out of hand!

Best Wishes & HFF

Beautiful light. Maybe the cannon are there for birthday salutes and the fence to stop the champagne corks littering the three lochs that meet there.
