The ruin of a round stone castle sits on a tiny island on a lake, the island is just big enough for the tower. One side of the tower has crumbled away. Trees surround the island and disappear into the water, birds fly across the sky. The reflection of the tower is clearly seen in the still water, creating a mirror image. The weather is grey and foggy obscuring the boundary between the water and the sky.
