The Spectacular Arab Room (Moorish design) located in Herbert Tower at Cardiff Castle, Wales - The ceiling was designed in the 1880s by architect and Medieval revivalist William Burges who was inspired by his extensive travels. Cardiff Castle itself dates back to at least the 11th century at the site of a much earlier Roman Fort. It was a quiet day at the castle and the guards let me get much closer than normal, thank you!
Rainy Day at Cardiff Bay, Cardiff, Wales - The Maritime Memorial, and abstract sculpture by Brian Fell, is inscribed: In memory of the merchant seafarers from the ports of Barry Penarth Cardiff who died in times of war.

Epic Sunset at Crow Castle - This is my most viewed image, at 140,000,000 views, due in large part to Picassa and Google plus. Castell Dinas Brân is a medieval castle standing high atop a hill above Llangollen in Denbighshire, Wales. It's said the first structure at Dinas Brân was not this ruined castle but an Iron Age hillfort built around 600 BC. The walk up is fairly easy and the views are certainly worth it!
Crow Castle, Llangollen, Dee Valley, Wales - Castell Dinas Brân is a medieval castle standing high atop a hill commanded views for miles around above Llangollen (home of the International Eisteddfod) in Denbighshire. It's said the first structure at Dinas Brân was not this ruined castle but an Iron Age hillfort built around 600 BC. The walk up is fairly easy and the views are certainly worth it!
Wavy Pierhead Street Car Park, Cardiff Bay, Cardiff, Wales - Cardiff Bay, formerly Tiger Bay, has been through a major redevelopment program making it ideal for photographers! I rarely do these 'abstract' images, sometimes I think I'm just lazy, then regret it afterward. I also did something here I hardly ever do, a dutch-angle! I photographed this from Bute Pl Street.
This is the Folly (40 foot high) close to Pontypool Park, Torfaen, Pontypool in Wales, an old Roman watchtower. It was taken down just prior to the Second World War (On July 9, 1940) as it was thought it could be used as a landmark for the Luftwaffe seeking to bomb the nearby Ordnance Factory. It was reconstructed and reopened by the Prince of Wales on July 22, 1994.
Sunrise at The Green Bridge of Wales (about 80 feet high), a limestone natural arch, is a famous landmark in Wales, located close to Castlemartin, Pembrokeshire, adjacent to the Stack Rocks and the Cauldron. The area lies the Ministry of Defence's Castlemartin military training area, I could hear the boom of the tanks firing off shells, not too far away!
