Chirk Castle 2/5

On the way home from Porthmadog, North Wales last September we stopped off at the National Trust property at Chirk Castle and for three weeks I am featuring a series of shots I took there on three different themes.

 

Seen here from the lovely gardens (see those in two weeks time) the Welsh flag can be seen flying high over the castle.

 

You can now view a selection of the latest competition images from my camera club here

I like the angle.Looking at the flag it was windy
Brian Walbey: There was a breeze vintage, it is at the top of quite a high hill.

nice sight there, love the green grass, so fresh
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal, the garden is lovely.
One to add to the list smile
Brian Walbey: It is well worth a visit John, not far off the A5 the England side of Llangollen.
A lovely image with beautiful manicured gardens.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Laurette. I'm showing the gardens properly in two weeks time.
I like this view of it Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron.
Looks good from the view point in the garden Brian
Brian Walbey: It does indeed Janet, thanks.
Very strange! yesterday I commented on the building and didn't notice the windows. Today those windows look so wrong in that building. Very strange indeed!
Brian Walbey: It is a strange looking castle altogether Sheila, probably because it is more like a castellated house I suppose.
A most unusual building being so squat
Brian Walbey: It's a sort of house with all the castle bits added on Martin.
Great POV Brian. This must be quite a pleasant place!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it is a lovely place, we would have stayed longer but had quite a long journey home to finish.
Nice!! I have a few castles up my sleeve too, in a couple of days
Brian Walbey: I look forward to seeing those Marion.

Looks more like a ancestral home, Brina, than a castle, helped by the grass, the low profile and the lovely sky.
Brian Walbey: It is a stately home/castle cross Alan.
It is or looks quite low for a castle, lovely view point Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a bit like a stately home and a castle in one Linda.
another lovely view of the castle
Brian Walbey: Thanks Derek.

It seems to be squatting down in its surroundings Brian. I see the Welsh dragon fluttering in the breeze.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a bit like a stately home with castle bits Ingrid.
