Photography was my second choice for a hobby.
Water skiing was my first,but I couldn't find a lake with a slope.

Sorry. These are kind of crummy iPhone photos, taken from a poor perspective and poorly composed.

This is my #1 son. I was teaching him how to do long exposure work with ND filters and panoramas last week.

After I snapped the photo I moved his camera bag, so his gear didn't go in the water.

Bit of Castle bashing on the weekend - caught my friend playing with his new toy (1DX).
Note the head ware - yes SUN in Wales!

I would love to know this too. I've become a bit of a Welsh history junkie lately, and while I recognize the architectural style (it looks a lot like Harlech Castle to me), I don't know which castle it actually is.

That's Caerphilly Castle. Not the best angle to see it's true size. Back then you weren't getting in without a signed invitation - never mind how big your army was!

Harlech is a fine strong castle in a lovely location but it is a tiddler compared to Caerphilly! Not running Harlech down, it is a VERY well designed (and quite complete) strong castle but Caerphilly is on a different scale.
I don't know how many castles we have here in wales but there are 20 or so within a 20/25 mile radius of where I live near Bridgend. Some Welsh castles are now just a hump where a motte and bailey fort used to be but many a fairly complete and are well worth a visit if you ever get over here. Listed below are a few websites that you may find of interest:

More modern but this one was owned by Captain Morgan's family (the Privateer - Pirate?):
https://en.wikipedia.o​rg/wiki/Ruperra_Castle (external link)
The families main residence was Tredegar House where my 4 sisters went to school.

Attached are a couple of images - first is Oystermouth Castle (Swansea) the second is Kidwelly - both within an hours drive.

We also still have some industrial history that hasn't been destroyed yet!

Please note that these images are straight from the camera - I haven't had a chance to play yet.

Hiding behind the cameras!:twisted:

One poster expressed an interest in my part of the world so I was giving them some food for thought. A bit off topic I know but I don't know how to send images in a PM!

Anyway look at the last image - SUN in South Wales! It is such a rare occurrence that I couldn't find a photographer nearby!;-)a

If you want a complete numpty with a camera have a look at my avatar!

Thank you. :) Welsh history is a new topic of fascination for me.
