As a reflection of this, below are a series of photos I shot of the castle a couple of weeks ago. Of note here is that these were all shot freehand--that is, without the use of a tripod. Thanks to a very fast prime lens (my Nikkor 50mm f/1.4), I could open the aperture very wide and thus not require an exceptionally long shutter speed. This in turn allowed me to properly expose a photo without fear of camera shake. Because it's not always feasible to set up a big tripod in the middle of the park, just to get that one shot!
