it's the Rock of Cashel , also known as the Cashel of the Kings (which is my favorite name for it) , located in Ireland, I don't think the photo is photoshopped, here is another pic of it:

No - it's not photoshopped Habib - I've actually been to Cashel and it does look like that - though it's usually raining instead of the blue skies though

WOOOOOW you've actually been there!?

I was just thinking that I'd wish to see it with my own eyes one day and was planning my future trip to Ireland, wow Rosie that's amazing, was it as magnificent as it looks in the pix?

Yes - it is magnificent. Though, as I said, it was raining when I went, and a very dull, grey day ,so I didn't see it at it's best. You should definitely go to Ireland though - it's an amazing country - so much history, and the people are so friendly. Stay in Dublin for a few days, and then just hire a car and drive around to all the little villages and along the coast. It is well worth it. You'll be assured of a warm welcome wherever you go

first and foremost, the composer of the new title must be commended. it is an exellent title and a very profound one. i like it a lot.

ladies of the castle will get to come up with the next title for vol 6. i dont know who came up with this one but it is wonderful one.

finally the castle where eagles dare is truly magnificent. it looks like it is built in the high heavens. this is good. we do like it high and dry as we gaze over at our domain from above.

the castle--where eagles dare--is very much symbolic of the immortality of our thoughts and of our existence. we just cannot die.

it is also reflects and projects impenetrability.

I found it during my search for a suitable title, it's a quote from Nietzsche himself, I knew it was the perfect title once I saw it, and I knew you'll like it

What do you mean, "me of all people"?
Obviously my Muller fangirl campaign is working far too well, people clearly do not expect too much of my intellectual capacities.

That one is beautiful as well(Ireland ), but I was referring to the one you chose to be under your name.
