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.
The National Trust at Chirk Castle have quite a few people dressed in suitable costume doing things to entertain and educate.
The man on the left is demonstrating how chainmail armour was made whilst the chap on the right wears the atire of a castle guard from several centuries ago. He was quite popular with children wanting their picture taken with him.
The website for the castle can be found here
To finish the series next week I will show you some of the lovely gardens surrounding the castle.
Following my recent rant about a judge who called this image a "chocolate box" picture and then dismissed it, I put a print of it in front of a different judge on Tuesday evening at my club who rightly classed it as a landscape and awarded it a Highly Commended. Further to that he also awarded First place to a print of this one, a very enjoyable evening I feel.
