#SundayStills ~ Mysteries and Curiosities #Photography

Welcome to the Sunday Stills feature hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt.


This week’s theme is mysterious…synonyms include strange, puzzling or curious.

These creepy looking caves are in the grounds of Beeston Castle in Cheshire. I took the photos through the metal grill that keeps the public out. I don’t think I’d be venturing inside anyway.


The remains of over 50 buildings, which would have been thatched round houses, were found on a hillside in Anglesey, known as the Holyhead Mountain Hut Group. The site would have originally covered 15-20 acres

I forget where we saw this curiosity. Fragments of glass urinal flasks were unearthed in a 16th century latrine pit at Laugharne Castle in Carmarthenshire in Wales. The complete flask is a modern replica.


This is in Alnwick, Northumberland. It’s difficult to see with the reflections but you can just make out at least one of the bottles at the bottom of the picture in the middle if you enlarge the image.

It only became clear what this sculpture depicted after reading the plaque.

  1. First of all the caves are definitely a mysterious find. Europe seems to have a ton of mysterious landscapes and architecture built into those landscapes providing eerie theories and stories. Gotta love those cursed urinal bottles. Perfect mysteries for the theme this week, Cathy!
