New Gallery! Wales.

I went to Denbighsire in Wales recently for a weekend break. Unfortunately the weather was very cold, a little snowy, and a little rainy. This makes for a gallery that is a whole lotta grey.

But the Wales I found, though grey indeed, was still filled with treasures. I enjoy few things more than clambering over ancient ruins and I was delighted to find the abandoned 13th century castle of Dinas Brân to play around on for as long as my fingers could stand the cold.

I was also happy to find the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct built by my surname-sake Thomas Telford in 1805. It’s the longest and highest aqueduct in Britain and still carries water and boats along the Lllangollen Canal over the River Dee some 40 metres below.  

Otherwise in the gallery you’ll find some idea of the potential for scenic landscapes that Wales holds. You can find the gallery under Places > Wales, or here

I look forward to returning to the region, hopefully during clement weather, to capture even more of the variety the country holds.
