In the summer of 2009, Mrs H and I went on an ill-fated fortnight’s holiday in beautiful North Wales, basing ourselves just outside of Barmouth. Although some of the photos I took that fortnight have featured in my desktop wallpaper series, this is the first time that I’ve pulled together all the shots taken on holiday by theme.

Most people visit Harlech for the castle, the beach, or its golf course. As far as I can tell, few head up into the mountains behind it to stroll along the empty roads and footpaths and to enjoy both the fantastic views and the many standing stones that can be found up there.
