This castle was built from around 1283 in the reign of King Edward 1. It was famous for a seven year siege during The War of the Roses (1455-1487), and inspired the song 'Men of Harlech' (of which there are several versions)
A very grand old castle Richard that you have captured really well, your compositon and POV gives this feeling of grandier and the lovely tones in the clouds and the detail in the foreground sets this image off beautifully, well done!

This castle shot is really good, sharp, and plenty of balanced tones.

Looks like a strong fortress and probably not a very hospitable place... Any inside photos?

Very nice framing, which gives a special mood to this shot…

WOW! I hope to one day visit a castle.

Looks a forbidding place . . but I guess castles were meant to impose such feelings. I like how Nature is slowly storming the walls.
