    Conwy Castle

    One of the historic Castles of North Wales. Had to take several to catch some time without car lights dominating the scene.

    Stunningly gorgeous... so much so it looks like a fairy tale, the promotion photo for some movie.

    Very good work John. Great mood captured with that sky and the composition with the walls and walkways leading through to the castle works very well indeed.

    Dave.

    Agree, it looks like an opening of a Hollywood movie!
    Excellent photo.

    John: I was there on a whirlwind tour back in the late '90s. I was struck by the existence of a thriving town within the walls of the castle. I'd also visited Warwick Castle, Castle Beaumaris, and Leeds Castle; all of which were tourist destinations.

    Hi John,

    I can't really add anything without repeating phrases already used by others, but I'll try; "magnificent".

    Worth the wait,

    Same here. The only, colloquial, term I can think of is that this is a real 'belter'. I think the use of that wall prominent in the foreground and taking us back into the image is an excellent bit of composition.

    Re: Conwy Castle

    Thanks so much for your comments all of you. Wales is one of our favourite UK holiday destinations. Photographically, there always seems something around the corner. I spotted the possibility driving past earlier in the day on the way back to our cottage behind the castle. If I'm good, I am allowed out for a couple of hours on my own with a camera and this was one of those occasions. George, there is no doubt that the castles are a draw and we do have a few in the UK but North Wales has four within easy reach of each other. All are worth a visit if you ever get another chance.

    Its a great shot and definitely fits into the category of a much photographed scene/landmark captured from an unusual spot to make a special and unique photo.

    Thanks for the comment Kaye. I guess that's the challenge with holiday destinations but I rarely succeed.
