Castell Coch

By zapar40
thank you for the response with clicks and comments on my last image, somthing different from me for the weekend, hope your all having fun with this changable weather.

Castell Coch (English: Red Castle) is a 19th-century Gothic Revival castle built on the remains of a genuine 13th-century fortification. It's situated on a steep hillside high above the village of Tongwynlais, to the north of Cardiff in Wales. (wiki)

cheers for looking in.

Looks positively Teutonic, Anthony. Excellent composition, and the backlighting and dusting of snow gives some lovely contrast.

The composition is excellent Ant as is the exposure, the lighting is very tricky on this, about the castle built by the Marquis of Bute had more money than sense! The castle was hardly lived in after completion.

Excellent Ant. It's not easy to exclude cars and get a good angle. I like it.

Excellent composition and light Ant. Fancy that something that Durb hasn't photographed, I thought that he'd snapped every blade of grass and stone from here to Cardiff! lolWink
