Conwy Castle

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 31 March 2010 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The medieval castle at Conwy in north Wales.

The wall in front of the castle is part of the railway which crosses the River Conwy next to the castle on the far right of this photo. Unfortunately Stephenson's horrible 1849 tubular wrought iron box railway bridge hides the much more elegant and spectacular 1826 suspension bridge by Telford:

I never fail to be impressed by what I see in your skies Ian. Is every one of them subject to a little dodging and burning, or just those which are not long exposures?

wonderful composition! using b&w, especially with the dramatic clouds, gives this place a deserved powerful feeling - i can really feel the strength of the castle here and how it has stood the test of time...

Stunning mood and perfect foil for a black and white! ONE OF THE BEST ARCHITECTURAL SHOTS I HAVE SEEN. Can image how it would be for a poster. Way to go and a perfect showcase of what you are capable of!
