One of the many reasons I love Second Life. The builders are so talented. Inside they have all the staircases and pictures on the walls... it's very cool. There is a fair going on there at the moment too~

Alnwick Castle Most famously in recent years, featured as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the first two Harry Potter films. Scenes filmed at the castle include Harry's first Quidditch lesson and the crash-landing of the flying Ford Anglia.

"The forest hides many secrets."

—Ronan

The Forbidden Forest, also known as Dark Forest borders the edges of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry grounds.

 

The forest is a very old place that holds many secrets and houses many creatures, some dark and Dangerous, others friendly. The trees in the forest are considered ancient, they are dense and rough looking from years of exposure to the elements.

 

As the forest's name suggests, it is strictly off limits to students — except in the case of detention, or Care of Magical Creatures lessons that occasionally take place there. Of course, with the various dangerous creatures living in the Forest, few students would even want to venture into it. Black flowers are known to grow in the forest.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. So well done. Such ambiance at night. Can't wait to return!

Regno Unito, Londra, King’s Cross Station, Inverno 2015

 

La stazione ferroviaria di King’s Cross è un importante capolinea ferroviario di Londra che fu inaugurato nel 1852 sul margine settentrionale del centro di Londra e prende nome da un monumento a Re Giorgio IV che è stato demolito nel 1845. Una nuova struttura semicircolare nell’area partenze è stata aperta al pubblico il 19 marzo 2012. L'edificio semicircolare ha un raggio di 54 metri e oltre 2.000 pannelli triangolari, di cui la metà in vetro. La copertura è stato descritta come "una specie di cascata invertita, una griglia in acciaio bianco che si erge dal terreno e ricade sopra la tua testa". King’s Cross è menzionata nei libri di Harry Potter, di JK Rowling, come punto di partenza dell’Hogwarts Express per la Scuola di Hogwarts di Magia e Stregoneria. Il treno utilizza una piattaforma segreta 9¾ alla quale si accede attraverso un muro di mattoni tra le piattaforme 9 e 10.

 

King's Cross railway station is a major London railway terminus which opened in 1852 on the northern edge of central London and it took its name from a monument to King George IV that was demolished in 1845. A new semi-circular departures concourse, opened to the public on 19 March 2012. The semi-circular building has a radius of 54 metres and over 2,000 triangular roof panels, half of which are glass. The structure of the roof has been described as being "like some kind of reverse waterfall, a white steel grid that swoops up from the ground and cascades over your head". King's Cross features in the Harry Potter books, by J. K. Rowling, as the starting point of the Hogwarts Express to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The train uses a secret platform 9¾ accessed through the brick wall barrier between platforms 9 and 10.

More details to come, stay tuned!

Edward "Ted" Tonks (c. 1950s – March, 1998) was a Muggle-born wizard, the husband of Andromeda Tonks (née Black), the father of Nymphadora Tonks, and grandfather of Edward Remus Lupin. He attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1960s. It can be assumed that while in school he met Andromeda, who was at the time a fellow student.

 

When Ted married Andromeda, who was born into a prejudiced pure-blood family, he singled her out for scorn by most of her relatives. The couple had one child, who later became a member of the Order of the Phoenix during the Second Wizarding War. Ted and Andromeda were not members of the Order, but assisted them occasionally. They allowed the Order to use their home as a safe house during the Battle of the Seven Potters.

 

When Lord Voldemort succeeded in taking over the Ministry of Magic in 1997 and the Muggle-Born Registration Commission was established, Ted went on the run. He was eventually caught and murdered by a group of Snatchers in March of 1998.

This started out as little gift for a friend with a whole other theme in mind, but ended up being the School of witchcraft and wizardry.. :)

"Your mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn't see it in themselves."

—Description of Lily's nature

Lily J. Potter (née Evans) (30 January, 1960 – 31 October, 1981) was a Muggle-born witch, the younger daughter of Mr and Mrs Evans and the younger sister of Petunia Evans, who would later be the person who would take care of Lily's son. She learned that she was a witch as a child, after Severus Snape (a wizard boy who lived nearby) recognised her as such and told her of the existence of magic. Lily attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1971-1978. She was Sorted into Gryffindor House and was a member of the Slug Club. In her seventh year Lily was made Head Girl and began dating James Potter.

 

After Hogwarts she married James and they had a son, Harry James Potter, of whom she made Sirius Black the godfather. The couple, along with their friends Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew joined the Order of the Phoenix during the First Wizarding War; she and her husband defied Lord Voldemort himself three times. However, Lily and James were forced to go into hiding after a prophecy was made concerning Lord Voldemort and their infant son. She and James were betrayed by Pettigrew, thus Lily and her husband were murdered by Voldemort on Hallowe'en night in 1981, while trying to protect their son.

 

Lily briefly appeared again through the Resurrection Stone, along with James, Sirius, and Remus in 1998. After the end of the Second Wizarding War Lily had three grandchildren through her son: James Sirius Potter, Albus Severus Potter, and Lily Luna Potter, the last of whom was named in memory of her.

(1920 – 1977) was a pure-blood witch, the youngest child of Cygnus Black II and Violetta Bulstrode, sister of Pollux Black, Cassiopeia Black, and Marius Black, wife of Charlus Potter, mother of James Potter and grandmother of Harry James Potter. She attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where she was sorted into Slytherin House.

"Potter, you cannot win against me! I was and am the Dark Lord's most loyal servant. I learned the Dark Arts from him, and I know spells of such power that you, pathetic little boy, can never hope to compete!"

—Bellatrix Lestrange on her own loyalty and skill

Bellatrix Lestrange (née Black) (1951 – 2 May, 1998) was a pure-blood witch, the eldest daughter of Cygnus Black III and Druella Black (née Rosier) and elder sister of Andromeda Tonks and Narcissa Malfoy. She was a member of the House of Black, an old wizarding family and one of the Sacred Twenty-Eight. Bellatrix started her education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1962 and was Sorted into Slytherin House.

 

After graduating from Hogwarts she became a Death Eater. She was fanatically loyal to Lord Voldemort and was among the most dangerous and sadistic of Voldemort's followers. While Bellatrix and Narcissa married pure-blood wizards, Andromeda married Ted Tonks, a Muggle-born wizard and was disowned by the family. Andromeda was burned off the Black Family Tree, just like Sirius Black, and they were forbidden to talk about her. At the end of the First Wizarding War Bellatrix, Rodolphus Lestrange (husband), Rabastan Lestrange (brother-in-law), and Barty Crouch Jr took part in the torture of the Aurors Frank and Alice Longbottom, parents of Neville Longbottom, to the point of driving them insane, while searching for information on Lord Voldemort after his first downfall. They were caught and sentenced to life imprisonment in Azkaban for torturing the two Aurors.

 

Bellatrix escaped from Azkaban in the 1996 mass break-out, along with nine other Death Eaters. She participated in several battles of the Second Wizarding War, making it a particular goal to murder any relatives who were members of the Order of the Phoenix, including her cousin Sirius Black and niece Nymphadora Tonks. Bellatrix also murdered the Malfoy family's former house-elf, Dobby, who had become a firm ally of Harry Potter, with her knife. During the final battle, apart from Voldemort, she was the last Death Eater standing, but was eventually killed in a duel by Molly Weasley after her attempted murder of Molly Weasley's daughter, Ginevra Weasley.

"I know what you're going to say, that Regulus changed his mind... but he doesn't seem to have explained that to Kreacher, does he? And I think I know why. Kreacher and Regulus's family were all safest if they kept to the old pure-blood line. Regulus was trying to protect them all."

—Hermione Granger on Regulus

Regulus Arcturus Black(1961 – 1979) was a pure-blood wizard, born to Orion and Walburga Black, and the younger brother of Sirius Black. He was a member of the House of Black, an old wizarding family.

 

He attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1972 and was sorted into the Slytherin house. Regulus became a Death Eater in his youth, but defected when he found what Lord Voldemort would do in order to reach his aims. Regulus also learned about one of Voldemort's horcruxes, and decided to destroy it. He was killed after acquiring Salazar Slytherin's locket in 1979.

"The girl gave off an aura of distinct dottiness. Perhaps it was the fact that she had stuck her wand behind her left ear for safekeeping, or that she had chosen to wear a necklace of Butterbeer caps, or that she was reading a magazine upside down."

—Harry Potter's description of Luna

Luna Lovegood (b. 13 February, 1981) was a witch, the only child and daughter of Xenophilius and Pandora Lovegood. Her mother accidentally died while experimenting with spells when Luna was nine and Luna was raised by her father, editor of the magazine The Quibbler, in a rook-like house near the village of Ottery St Catchpole.

 

Luna attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1992-1999 and was sorted into Ravenclaw House. In her fourth year, Luna joined Dumbledore's Army, an organisation taught and led by Harry Potter, of which she became an important member. She participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries (1996) and the Battle of the Astronomy Tower (1997), and co-led the reconstituted Dumbledore's Army when Hogwarts fell under the control of Lord Voldemort. Because of her father's political dissidence at the time, Luna was abducted by Death Eaters to be held ransom, and imprisoned in the dungeons of Malfoy Manor for months. She was freed by Dobby along with several other prisoners in the spring of 1998, and stayed at Shell Cottage until she returned to Hogwarts to participate in the final battle of the Second Wizarding War.

 

After the war, Luna became a Magizoologist (magical naturalist) and eventually married Rolf Scamander, with whom she had twin sons, Lorcan and Lysander. Luna's good friends Harry and Ginny Potter also named their daughter and third child, Lily Luna Potter, in honour of her.

"All right, the sweetshop's rather good, and Zonko's Joke Shop's frankly dangerous, and yes, the Shrieking Shack is always worth a visit..."

ANSH46 - 02: Something you might see if you were Harry Potter at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Clara's first nights at Hogwarts seemed to be defined by the constant downpour that raged outside the castle walls. Was this, perhaps, a foreshadowing as to just how hard her fifth year at the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry were going to be? Only time would tell...

"Andromeda was my favourite cousin. No, Andromeda's not on here either, look. Andromeda's sisters are still here because they made lovely, respectable pure-blood marriages, but Andromeda married a Muggle-born, Ted Tonks, so —"

—Sirius Black discussing Andromeda

Andromeda Tonks (née Black) (b. ~1951-1955), also known as Dromeda, was a pure-blood witch and the middle daughter of Cygnus and Druella Black (née Rosier), as well as the sister of Bellatrix and Narcissa. She attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1960s and was sorted into Slytherin House.

 

After Hogwarts, she married a Muggle-born, Ted Tonks, and was disowned by her prejudiced family. In 1973 she became the mother of Nymphadora Tonks. During the Second Wizarding War, Andromeda and her husband were allies of the Order of the Phoenix as their daughter was a member. Nymphadora married Remus Lupin in 1997 and had a son, Edward Remus Lupin. During the war in 1998, Andromeda's husband was murdered by Snatchers, Remus was murdered at the Battle of Hogwarts, and Nymphadora was also murdered by Andromeda's sister, Bellatrix Lestrange.

 

After the Second Wizarding War, Andromeda raised her grandson with the help of his godfather Harry Potter, which meant that Teddy also spent time with the Potter and Weasley families.

Gloucester Cathedral, or the Cathedral Church of St Peter and the Holy and Undivided Trinity, in Gloucester, England, stands in the north of the city near the river. It originated with the foundation of an abbey dedicated to Saint Peter in 678 .

transformed into the corridors of Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the films of JK Rowling’s first two books – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Note: Time for a re-do of this shot. The chromatic aberration and noise will be much better then, and the new version will view full-screen.

 

During the English Civil War (1642 - 1651) Oxford became the Royalist capital of England and the Great Hall was the seat of the government of Charles I.

 

Likely only of interest to Harry Potter fans, this is the movie setting for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry's dining room scenes.

Majestic Durham Cathedral Night shot Alanpt2016:copyright:

Built between 1093 and 1490, Durham Cathedral, with the exception of the upper parts of its towers, the eastern extension known as the Chapel of Nine Altars, and the large west window of 1341, is entirely Norman and is regarded by Alec Clifton-Taylor as "the incomparable masterpiece of Romanesque architecture". The interior is “overwhelmingly impressive”.The western Lady Chapel known as the Galilee Chapel is a unique Norman building different in style to the cathedral itself. The view of the cathedral from the south west is particularly famous because of its “incomparable setting” on a steep promontory above the River Wear.

Durham Cathedral has been featured in the Harry Potter films as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where it had a spire digitally added onto the top of the famous towers.

Some pretty impressive work with this sand castle. Yes that is a copy of Hogwarts and several of the major characters.

For some reason, I've never been inside any of the Universal Orlando parks after dark. I typically bail out around dinner time so I've never had the opportunity to see things at night. Last night Cory Disbrow and I spent some time shooting around Wizarding World. We only had a few minutes after the official closing as this area of the park emptied but it was fun to get out and shoot something different.

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."

(Helen Keller - American author and political activist, 1880–968)

 

This is one of the doors of the main building of the Sampurnanand Sanskrit University in Varanasi (Benaras).

The architecture of this place is an amazing blend of Western Gothic style with Sanskrit elements.

There are doors everywhere, most of them are closed but when one opens it is always a moment of happiness as it is like stepping in a daydream with an extraordinary set lost in time.

Somehow it looks Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and you wouldn’t be surprised to see Harry Potter in one of those classrooms...

Here it is! After 2 and half year in the making, my Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry!

It's also my biggest project so far with well over 13000 parts, it also features a full interior!

 

As you can see my stream is full with plain white pictures, that is because this is also my entry into CCCXI! For those of you who do not know you are only allowed to enter three pictures that is 800x600 big. So when the contest is done I will upload detailed shots of the whole castle on both the exterior and interior! So keep and eye out for that!

I will also post a video on my Youtube channle shortly so look forward for that!

 

btw I'm very sorry for the very bad picture, but I couldn't do better with my iPhone... :-(

 

I also want to say happy new year to everyone!

The Glenfinnan Monument on the shores of Loch Shiel.

 

The Glenfinnan Monument was erected in 1815 to mark the place where Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) raised his standard, at the beginning of the 1745 Jacobite Rising. One of my relatives, John Gordon of Glenbuchat, was reputedly present at the event.

 

Loch Shiel was used as The Black Lake at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter movies.
