Uppsala tower

I've got to take better notes when I take vacation photos. This tower was on a high hill (perhaps the highest point) right next to city hall. There was a historical significance described on a nearby plaque, but I neglected to record it, yet I still like the image.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

The Gunilla bell. It stands next to the castle in Uppsala. The bell was made in 1588 as a gift from queen Gunilla to the castle church in Uppsala.

It looks very commanding against the blue sky.

That tower has a massive look that I like. Taking notes detracts from taking pictures.

Well it does have a very statuesque appearance - whatever it is! Nice composition, Harry!

Perhaps it is the tower of an old bell tower?
