Borth-y-Gest - Part 2 - 5/5

To finish this group of pictures looking out across Tremadog Bay to the Rhinog mountains you can see here the small town of Harlech and its famous castle.  This was taken on  my Olympus E450 DSLR with full zoom, 380mm., the castle is about 4.5 miles from where I was standing. BTW the main railway line runs along below the castle, it is a very nice journey.

This is a fine shot, Brian, but you might have been just a touch heavy with the colored pencils. smile

I remember walking around the castle ramparts many years ago
Brian Walbey: We stayed overnight in a Harlech hotel on a coaching holiday, unfortuntely the castle was closed in the evening of course.

Impressive long shot, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl.
Seeing the castle from the POV of a marauder, Brian, takes on a whole new meaning.
Brian Walbey: I've always thought with castles it must have been possible to bypass them a bit further down the road unless there were lots of soldiers and defenses all over the place.

A great shot and that castle is built on a very strategic point, they shoot at everything that floats by.... I assume you made trip over there?
Brian Walbey: Many years ago we stayed overnight in a hotel next to the castle but of course it was closed in the evening.

An interesting view of the castle Brian.
Brian Walbey: It no doubt gives a good view up and down the estuary.
did you burst into song Brian?
Brian Walbey: Funny you should say that, many years ago we holidayed in Llandudno and went to two Male Voice Choir evening concerts (they do them every week throught he season) and at the first they invited any MVC members in the audience to join the choir to sing a well know song which I did of course. At the second concert Maureen suggested I might like to give it a miss if they done the same, as it was they didn't.

What a lovely view on the castle - and I love the blue weater!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine.
I was telling Alan a while back about something I had just come across in research. The English governors were told to not settle people in small villages like was done in England but to have people settle along routes instead.

I am liking this series!
Brian Walbey: That's very interesting Mary, there are homesteads dotted about all over the place in the U.K. away from towns, villages and cities. I'm pleased you enjoyed my series, next week, same area in awful weather, it doesn't look quite so 'pretty picture' then!
An interesting landscape.
Brian Walbey: Better than the view from my bedroom window for sure Tom ):
an excellent panorama with the long lens Brian... i like your letterbox crop....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.
