Portmeirion II

By moiral
Afternoon all. These colourful buildings are in Portmeirion Village. The building in the bg with the orange roof is known as the Chantry. It is built on an outcrop of rock and is the highest point in the whole village. This was one of the first buildings to be built in the village.
The white building is a pantiled loggia and houses a gilt statue of Buddha (V2). This statue was appearantly salvaged from a film shoot.
Thanks for C&Cs on last night's upload, and a big thank you to Netta1234 for her UA. Also a big thank you to Trev for his UA a couple of days ago which I forgot to mention.

Love the Buddha shot, the metallic tones are absolutely brilliant (oops, there's another pun)! I confess that I find the idea of a Buddha in a loggia in a pseudo Italian village in Wales highly amusing.
